rare opportunity to visit the home of Charlotte Bergman, who was one of the Israel Museum`s most important benefactors. The house is located on the Museum campus and was designed to be an integral part of it. It was built especially for Mrs. Bergman at the initiative of Jerusalem`s legendary mayor, Teddy Kollek. From an architectural perspective, the house translates the Museum`s construction language into domestic uses. The interior design was influenced by Mrs. Bergman`s home in New York and is replete with original works by Braque, Chagall, Dufy, Moore, Picasso, Calder, Maillol, and other artists. It also contains furniture, artifacts and jewelry that Charlotte collected during her numerous trips around the world, some of which she took with her husband Louis, who died in 1955. In its heyday, the house served as a literature and art salon that hosted intellectuals and men and women of the arts.
Charlotte died in 2002 (at the age of 98) and the Museum continues to honor her wish that the house be kept exactly as it was – namely, the home of a late 20th century art collector – just like the period rooms in the Museum.
The tours will be led by Nurit Orr, a senior guide from the Israel Museum`s guide staff.
