Remembering Yosl Bergner

Monday, 23 July 2018 | 06:00 AM

Brothers 2014

12 July–29 July

Paintings and sculptures by celebrated Australian and Israeli artist Yosl Bergner are featured in this exhibition. Renowned for his powerful social realist style and a compelling depiction of the human condition, the works in this exhibition are rich in symbolism and drawn from a private collection in Melbourne. Yosl Bergner (born 1920, died 2017) lived and worked as an artist in Melbourne from 1937 until 1948 and influenced many Australian artists during this period. He moved to Israel in the early 1950s where he exhibited and worked creatively, developing new bronze sculptures in the last decade of his life.
