For the first time in Israel, the Beit Avi Chai Gallery presents a retrospective exhibition of artist Anatoly Kaplan, with more than 100 original works exhibited on three floors that include prints, ceramics, oil and gouache paintings, and books illustrated by the artist.


Anatoly Kaplan (born in 1902 in the town of Rogachov, a small shtetl in what is now Belarus; died in Leningrad in 1980) was one of the major Soviet Jewish artists of the 20th century. Kaplan’s artistic oeuvre includes illustrations of Jewish literary works, depictions of Jewish life and of Rogachov, his beloved hometown. Many of Kaplan’s works have never been exhibited in Israel. Unlike Chagall and Soutine, the artist was never permitted to travel outside the Soviet Union.

Opening hours: Sunday-Thursday, 10 a.m. –6 p.m.; Fridays: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
