ALIYAH: THE REBIRTH OF ISRAEL

25 Lithographs of Original Gouaches
By SALVADOR DALI




About the Exhibition

An epic history of the return of the Jewish People to their homeland – expressed in 25 bold, dramatic, yet sensitive drawings, sketches and water-color paintings – was created by the surrealist master, Salvador Dali in ALIYAH: THE REBIRTH OF ISRAEL. The work was commissioned by Samuel Shore, the head of Shorewood Publishers, New York, noted for publications of art, in April 1968, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel. Dali devoted two years to the completion of this monumental task. ALIYAH is considered one of the artist’s most visually appealing and historically significant graphic commissions. A finite 250 sets of these lithographs were produced, and have been added to the art treasures of Israel, private collectors and museums worldwide. The Simon Wiesenthal Center Archive’s complete set of lithographs signed by the artist is currently on display at the Museum of Tolerance.
