About

Original Bronze sculpture by German Israeli artist Noemi Schindler. Signed with her initials in Hebrew. Minimalist grace, elegance and proportion. Noemi Schindler was born in Berlin, Germany in 1919 a daughter to Hugo Levi who was a silk merchant and Frida nee Radler from Konigsberg. Her paternal grandfather came originally from Vilna and earned his living in Berlin by framing pictures for the artist's M. Silbermann, Uri lesser, Adolf Menzel among many others. Noemi's talent for painting became evident at an early age when she would sketch and paint without any formal instruction. Although, religiously speaking, the family was not observant, they did keep up some traditions. They were members of the Reform Jewish community led by it was the upsurge of the Nazi Movement that convinced her father to become a follower too. Soon afterwards, in 1931, he died. Noemi attended a state elementary school and then went on to study at the Karl Marx secondary school where most of the pupils were Jewish. Following Hitler's rise to power the school was closed and Noemi (Rosa) moved to a Jewish boarding school near Berlin, where Martin Buber's brand of Zionist philosophy was the dominating influence. In 1936, Noemi a seventeen-year-old refugee from Nazi Germany arrived in Palestine with a Youth Aliya group and settled at Kibbutz Ayelet Hashahar in the Upper Galilee. Yechiel, a member of the Kibbutz, fell in love with her at first sight and the eventually married and settled down at the Kibbutz. In 1938 Noemi decided to choose art as her career and the Kibbutz, recognizing her right to do so, allowed her to take four a stipend for four years, she was unable to take full advantage of it because the Bezalel School of Art did not have a sculpture department of their own until 1942, when she joined Aharon studio and learned painting and sculpture from Sternschuss. By 1943 she was already taking part in a group art show held taking part in a group art show held in the foyer of the Habima theatre. At the kibbutz she continued to sculpt and also took several courses organized by the kibbutz artists association directed by Rudi Lehmann. Following the political split in the Kibbuts hameuchad movement she left Ayelet hashahar in 1949 and together with her husband moved to Jerusalem where she continued to receive advice and guidance from Rudi Lehmann. In 1953 the family moved again, this time to Kibbutz Hagosherim where Noemi worked as nurse, at the children house and as a teacher. Noemi, in keeping with her status as a member of the Israeli Association of Painters and Sculptors, began participating in group shows and exhibitions including and exhibition by artists from Haifa and the Northern Region at the At the Artists' House in Haifa in 1958. Later that year Noemi accompanied her husband when he went to Paris to serve as an emissary. There she exhibited her works at the autumn salon exhibitions and the following year in the independence Salon. She also participated in an exhibition by Israeli artist in Paris and exhibited her works at the Salon d'Automne there. She made the most of her time in Paris by taking several art courses. The motherhood motif as well as nude lovers in embrace both served as a recurring motif in her art but they have a gentle non erotic quality to them. She has showed in the Israeli Art galleries at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem Advanced studies, Paris. Her sculptures- with their sinuous curves and anthropomorphic forms carved from exotic woods and cast in bronze evoke the work of Henry Moore.
