General

The Nahum Gutman Museum of Art is located in the historical "Writers House", which was built in 1887 and was one of the first buildings in the Neve Zedek neighborhood in Tel Aviv. Between 1907 to 1914 the structure was used for the newspaper "Hapoel Hatzair", edited by Yosef Haim Brenner. The building received the name "Writers House" because numerous writers lived there over time, including Asher Barash and Yehuda Burla. During World War one the building seized to be used for that purpose. I became a regular house until it was abandoned completely the 1960's. In 1992 after the building was designated to be preserved, it was completely renovated. In 1998 the museum opened and the collection was donated by the family of the artist Nahman Gutman. In addition, items from Gutman's studio were recreated in one of the rooms of the museum. In 2009, a new wing opened in the museum, which included an event hall, museum store and another exhibition.
