Visual arts in Israel refers to plastic art created in the Land of Israel/Palestine region, from the latter part of the 19th century until today, or art created by Israeli artists. Visual art in Israel ranges from a variety of traditional local arts to "Fine Art" influenced by the Western art of Europe and the United States. Israeli art is rich in techniques, styles, means of expression, and varied themes reflecting attempts to formulate a national identity. Research on the history of art deals extensively with the complex relationship between Israeli art and both local and international characteristics, with its ties to Jewish art through the ages and, in recent years, even with its ties and attitudes towards Arabic culture in Israel.

Famous quotes containing the words art and/or israeli:
“O Rose, thou art sick!
The invisible worm
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm,
Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.”
—William Blake (17571827)
“Both gossip and joking are intrinsically valuable activities. Both are essentially social activities that strengthen interpersonal bondswe do not tell jokes and gossip to ourselves. As popular activities that evade social restrictions, they often refer to topics that are inaccessible to serious public discussion. Gossip and joking often appear together: when we gossip we usually tell jokes and when we are joking we often gossip as well.”
—Aaron Ben-ZeEv, Israeli philosopher. The Vindication of Gossip, Good Gossip, University Press of Kansas (1994)
