Fodor's Expert Review Mané Katz Museum
This whitewashed building on Panorama Road is the house and studio where the expressionist painter Emmanuel Katz (1894–1962) lived and worked for the last four years of his life. Katz spent the 1920s in Paris, where he exhibited with a group of avant-garde Jewish artists from the École de Paris. As in the canvases of fellow members Marc Chagall and Chaim Soutine, a recurring theme in his work is the village life of Eastern European Jews. Besides Katz's paintings, drawings, and sculptures are the Ukrainian-born artist's collection of rugs, 17th-century antiques from Spain and Germany, and Judaica.
