Presler Private Museum-Tel Aviv

I recently had a cordial invite to a small but very smart gallery showing in south Tel Aviv. The Presler Private Museum stands three stories proud on Wolfson Street in the Florentin district and for those of us who enjoy out of the box exhibitions this urban art institute is definitely a go to.Presler Museum

The musPresler Museumeum which opened its doors in October 2013, is owned by Yigal Presler, a gentleman who has for over twenty years studied and collected art pieces.
The building itself is a classically designed but impressive structure. Three floors that are split up into several showrooms, (showcasing specific artists for a dedicated period ) plus a wonderfully spacious roof terrace complete with sculptures, from which there is a great perspective of  the southern city.
As the Department of Art owns a extensive and rare 20th century collection of pieces these are given on loan to other renown local and international museums. The Presler Museum concentrates on a particular period in time and gives a visitor such as myself a greater insight into the artworks created in the 20th century by the manner in which it exhibits the collections. Always eye food for thought!Presler Museum
At the time I was having a nosey around there were two major exhibitions. In this post in case you start yawning,  I will (try) to precis the history of one of the artists whose work I personally favor and then leave you with some eye candy!Presler Museum

    Would you have any knowledge of a landscape painting by artist, Moshe Tamir? This painting features a suspension bridge over a large body of water, under a crescent moon. I would appreciate your response
