Artist Information: (1907, Ukraine - 1997, Tel Aviv - Jaffa) was a children's book illustrator and one of the pioneers of illustration in the Land of Israel. She was born in Ukraine and in 1922 immigrated to Israel with her parents, Dov Hershkowitz (architect, was the city engineer of Tel Aviv) and Anna (Chana) from Vysyevna (who was a pianist). The family settled in Tel Aviv. She joined the Herzliya Gymnasium. After graduating from high school, she aspired to study art, but at the request of her pianist mother, she had to study music in Italy.
