Itzhak Danziger

Born: 1916, Berlin - Died: 1977

Israel's most famous sculptor, Danziger was one of the pioneer sculptors of the Canaanite Movement, and later joined the "Ofakim Hadashim" (New Horizons) group. His statue "Nimrod" at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem was controversial when he created it in 1938-39, but today it is considered one of the masterpieces of Israeli art. His "Rehabilitation of the Nesher Quarry" was a project to refashion the scarred land of the abandoned quarry near Haifa so the land was renewed. Through this and other projects, he was one of the great pioneers of Earth or Land art.
