Boris Schatz death... "father of Israeli art"...
Item # 652802
March 24, 1932
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 24, 1932
* Boris Schatz death (1st report)
* Lithuanian Jewish artist & sculptor
* Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design
* "Father of Israeli art"
Page 21 has a one column heading: "PROF. BORIS SCHATZ, NOTED ARTIST, DIES" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the death of Boris Schatz, a Lithuanian Jewosh artist and sculptor who settled in Palestine. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
