Shmuel Bonneh began painting at an early age, and left behind him a wealth of varied works. At the beginning of his artistic career his imagery and his talent attracted considerable attention. His paintings were frequently displayed in solo and in group exhibitions, and he represented Israel at important exhibitions abroad, including four biennales. All his presentations at the various artistic venues were warmly received by viewers and professionals alike. A selection of critiques from the press and from catalogues of his exhibitions can be found in “What the Critics Said” at this site.Bonneh created a unique artistic world, quite different in character and sources from the streams and fashions of contemporary art, in Israel and worldwide. In spite of many changes, his work remained rooted in three principle sources: the Bible, the landscapes of Israel, and his Jewish heritage. In these he found the subjects and the great inspiration that imbue his work.
