Ludwig Blum

1975 - 1891
He was born in 1891 in Czechoslovakia and died in 1974 in Jerusalem. Blum studied painting in several cities throughout Europe and in 1923 immigrated to Israel. He embarked on painting and research trips across Israel and the countries surrounding it. Known mainly for his realistic Israeli landscape paintings - the city of Jerusalem in particular - but the truth is he actually began his career as a portrait painter, with important figures from the Middle East as his subjects. In his paintings he offered different views on Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, on other holy places in the city and the surrounding area, and on subjects of an exotic and oriental nature. Bloom is known as a painter of the Holy City, but he was also one of the first to paint the city of Tel Aviv in the twenties. Beyond the realistic paintings of Jerusalem, Bloom was also connected to the city by other angles. He was one of the main initiators to found the Jerusalem Artists House, and for a long time served as chairman of the Association for Jerusalem Artists. His broad contribution to the city awarded him with the city's most beloved artist's award in 1968. His paintings were featured in may exhibitions in Israel ad across the world and many many of his paintings are in private and public collections today.
