Tel Aviv Exhibits the Recently Donated Wolloch Collection of Modern Sculpture
Alexander Calder, Machine Gun Traces, 1969.
TEL AVIV.- This collection of modern sculpture was donated to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art by Helene and Zygfryd Wolloch from Scarsdale, New York. The collection encompasses over a century of sculpture, from Auguste Rodin of the late 19th century to Arnaldo Pomodoro of the 1980s. It includes works by major sculptors in modern art, among them Jean Arp, Alberto Giacometti, Jacques Lipchitz, Henry Moore, Marino Marini and Alexander Calder. The collection was first exhibited in 1997 and constitutes an invaluable addition to the Museum's collections. Incorporated into the display are additional sculptures from the Museum's collections.

Many of the works show an affinity for the human figure, whether clearly figurative, as with Rodin, Renoir, Archipenko, Moore and Marini, or abstract and suggested, as in the works of Arp, Etrog and Poncet. The display highlights formal aspects concerned primarily with object–space relationships, pointing to new answers provided by modern sculpture to this fundamental feature of the medium. The more sculpture distanced itself from the representation of reality, the more space became an active element. The Wolloch Collection follows this process, expressed in the transition from the monolithic body representing a figure/object, in Rodin's and Kolbe's sculptures, into an abstract and linear construction, in the sculptures by Rickey and Calder. The object–space relationship in modern sculpture is also linked with the elements of time and movement; the sculptures of Rickey and Calder are set in motion by a slight current of air or a touch of the hand.
