Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, boasts a vast array of world art, spanning five continents and ranging from Rembrandt, Rubens, and a long-lost Poussin to cutting-edge creations by acclaimed contemporary artists; a Judaica holding that is considered the most comprehensive in the world; and a renowned Archaeology Wing, whose treasures include the Dead Sea Scrolls and a figurine thought to be the worlds oldest artwork. The splendors of this great encyclopedic museum are now displayed in 300 full-colour reproductions, accompanied by in-depth commentaries by its curators.
