Shmuel Lerner, The Flower-World of Israel (1949-1950)

In 1984, The Magnes acquired a unique portfolio of botanical drawings made in Israel by Shmuel (Samuel) Lerner, a Ukraine-born amateur artist from California. While Lerner’s biography and many details surrounding this work remain obscure, his drawings open today a unique window into the landscape, the history and the languages of Israel immediately after the establishment of the State.
