Gutman, Nahum

(1898-1980)
   Prominent Israeli artist. Born in Teleneshty, Bessarabia, he was brought to Palestine at the age of seven by his father, poet and novelist Simha Alter Gutmann (who wrote under the pseudonym Simha Ben-Zion). Nahum Gutman studied art at the Bezalel School in Jerusalem and served with the Jewish Legion under British military command in Palestine during World War I. After the war, he studied in Vienna, where he met the great Hebrew poet Haim Nahman Bialik and illustrated several of his works. Upon his return to Palestine in 1926, Gutman published several books for children and adults on life in early Tel Aviv, with his own drawings, accompanying prose, and painted landscapes and local scenes. He was the recipient of numerous international honors, including the Israel Prize in 1978 for his contribution to the arts. Gutman died in Tel Aviv.
