Mané-Katz was an important member of the "School of Paris" (Ecolé de Paris) - a group of young artists, many of them Jews, who arrived in Paris from Eastern and Central Europe at the beginning of the 20th century. They changed the face of art in France between the two world wars, and quickly participated actively in the avant-garde, taking a prominent role in establishing Paris as the capital of the art world, filled with new and extraordinary creative power.
The Mané-Katz Museum, located on Panorama Road overlooking the magnificent view across Haifa Bay, was opened in 1977 in the home of the artist, where he lived and created during the last years of his life. The intention of the Museum is to introduce the public to a culture that extends beyond the boundaries of the time and place by which it has been nourished and influenced, and on which Mane-Katz left his own impress. The Museum is thus a cultural centre that offers the public a range of lectures, events and encounters with noted specialists in cultural research and production.
