The first lady of Israeli painting, Anna Ticho, died here last Saturday at the Bikur Holim Hospital of a heart attack. She was 86 years old. Ticho, who was burn in Vienna, arrived in Jerusalem in 1914. Many of her paintings were devoted to the city of Jerusalem and the Judaean Mountains. She painted landscapes entirely from memory and imagination — hills, rocks and, terraces, glimpses of tombs and Arab villages. Ticho was awarded this year’s Israel Prize and twice had exhibitions at the Israel Museum.
