The highlight of the Israel Museums collection of 45,000 works on paper is the outstanding
group from the 20th century, the great majority of which are gifts donated over the 32-year
history of the museum. Since the Israel Museum has not previously exhibited these works

and contemporary artists like Susan Rothenberg, Richard Serra, Joel Shapiro, and Brice
