Over the past century, Israeli visual art — beginning even before the establishment of the country in 1948 — has gone through a number of styles and movements, including the Tower of David movement (1920s-1930s), the Canaanite movement (1940s), the Conceptual Art movement (1970s), and the Contemporary Art movement (1990s – present).

Quote: “As Israel developed as a country, both industrially and economically, it began to open up more and more to the rest of the world. By the 1990s, Israel had most of the technology as the US and Europe, and naturally, this affected the art world. The contemporary Israeli art world is characterized by its internationalism; new technologies and ideas are constantly being introduced at an extremely fast pace.”
