Baram-Brisel Art Annex

Biographies / Career Highlights

Sioma Baram (1919-1980) and Bella Brisel (1929-1982) produced their unique art from the 1950s through the 1980s, in Israel and in Formentera, Spain, where they lived for many years.

Baram is noted especially for his Jerusalem Series, which harvests the stars and blends them into the textures of Jerusalem, weaving in both mysticism and the history of that most historical city.

Brisel is better known for her figures of mothers and children, intertwined and interconnected.

During their lives, both were featured in one-person exhibitions in London, Paris, Tokyo, Jerusalem and other art centers, and were notable figures in the art world of their day.
