ISRAELI ART TO THE LOUVRE
A work by Israeli artist Roni Taharlev is part of an exhibition at Paris’s Louvre Museum marking the 50th anniversary of man’s first steps on the moon. The exhibit, titled ‘The Moon. Real and Imaginary Journeys,’ opened at the Grand Palais in Paris on April 3. It features works of art from different periods in Western art, including works by Giambattista Tiepolo, Jean-Antoine Houdon, Anne-Louis Girodet-Trioson, Henry Fuseli, Caspar David Friedrich and Gustav Doré. Taharlev’s painting is a variation on the theme of the Annunciation, titled ‘Not This Light, the Other Light’ (2018). At present she is working on two other Annunciation paintings from the same series, which will be shown in her solo exhibition at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in May.
