Teaching From 1935 Bezalel, Jerusalem, which he re-organised and directed until his death in 1940. (1888 in Posk , Poland – 1940 in Jerusalem) was a famous Jewish-Polish artist who mainly worked in Berlin and later in Jerusalem. Budko already studied from 1902 at the Art School Vilnius. In 1909 he came to Berlin, where he studied engraving. From 1910 he studied at the educational establishment of the. Berlin Arts and Crafts Museum together with Hermann Struck. From the mid-1920s he increasingly devoted himself to painting also. In 1933 Budko immigrated to the Land of Israel (then under the British Mandate for Palestine), where from 1934 to 1940 he became the director of the Bezalel New School of Applied Arts & Crafts (since 1969: Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design) in Jerusalem. Joseph Budko was an accomplished graphic artist who especially dealt with etchings, drypoint works and woodcuts. He created numerous illustrations, including The Jews of Bacharach (1921) by Heinrich Heine, Psalms (1919), The Babylonian Talmud (1924) and works for books of Bialik and Sholem Asch, Shmarya Gorelik, David Frischmann, Arno Nadel and Sholem Aleichem and excellent bookplate, which he used frequently for Hebrew characters. Budko sought traditional Jewish symbolism and ideas of Jewish art. In this context, his portfolios with clearly religious statements include Haggadah shel Pesach (26 drypoint Works, 1917), or individual graphics, particularly the mezzotint leaves as the angry Moses or Jeremiah comforts the mother Rahel (all between 1917 and 1930). Another topics that Budko dealt with were familiar forms of his youth in Eastern Europe Jewish Shtetls and the motive of the Wandering Jew: he often represented the confrontation between an old man an a young woman. After 1933, his art included also Israeli landscapes. ISRAELI BUYERS MUST ADD 17% V. TO THE FINAL PRICE. We guarantee all items we sell are 100% authentic! View more great items.
