Otte Wallish: The Face of Land and Nation

Otte Wallish:
The Face of Land
and Nation

First solo exhibition in a museum for graphic artist, designer and illustrator
Otte Wallish (1906–1977), who immigrated to Israel in 1934. Alongside designing posters on topics such as pioneering, illegal immigration, Holocaust and renewal, Wallish designed commercial posters and exhibitions. His works served ideological Zionism and its formation, culminating in the design of the ceremony and scroll of the Declaration of Independence. On show are posters gifted by the artist’s son Eri Wallish and items from the son’s collection.
