The exhibition was developed thanks to the generous donations from Nava and Moshe Cenciper, Dory and Michael Cwikel, Valentina and Vladimir Boyko, Debby and Thierry Zajdner, Evgenia and Joseph Rayslin (Russia), Lena Proskura. The list of volunteers is presented in the exhibition catalog.


The exhibition introduces visitors to masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, George Stubbs, Eugène Delacroix, Henri Rousseau, Franz Marc, Mark Chagall, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, and Andy Warhol.

The quality reproductions expertly capture the vivid colors and exceptional details of the original masterpieces. They are mounted on elaborate frames to convey a museum atmosphere.

Visitors are introduced to a variety of techniques used by artists: drawings, paintings, sculpture, photography and multimedia.

The exhibition also includes original works of contemporary Israeli and international animalist artists. Vincent Bouillat, a French artist whose works are included in the collections of several museums, presents three of his animal sculptures.

The exhibition engages visitors in a dialogue about the artists, their lives and the stories behind their creations. What motivates artists to paint and sculpt animals? To better understand and enjoy the genre, children are invited to a thrilling journey into the history of animalism from the Renaissance to present-day art.

The educational programs cover a wide range of issues, such as: the role of animals in human life, imagination and creativity, artistic styles and forms, the secrets of naturalistic and abstract imaging, the power and magic of color, artistic expression and emotions, geography and the beauty of the animal world. The leitmotif of this educational exhibition is Art and Nature in Our Lives.

The Photography section exhibits works on the theme by Israeli photographers. The Childrens Creations section displays selected works of our minor visitors.

Guided Tours for Children

Methodology materials for family visits and children of different ages accompany the exhibition. Local guides trained by ARTIS conduct the organized visits by kindergarten and school groups.
