One- man exhibition, “The Jerusalem Haggada”, At the Goldman Gallery, Haifa

“Above is a page from the first illuminated Passover Haggada devoted to Jerusalem the Rebuilt and the Reunited, a tremendous labour by Haifa painter Shmuel Bonneh’ published in full color by “Shikmona of Haifa. Bonneh’s typical mixture of Rouault, 17th century ikons, medieval illumination and even Chagall often produces some striking images but their further combination with traditional Passover illustration, not to mention the many diverse contemporary elements. […] Nevertheless this is a striking and original production.”


M. Ronen, “The Jerusalem Post, 12. 4 1968
