The Boris Schatz Collection was donated to the Skirball Museum, Cincinnati, by philanthropist Joseph Schonthal in 1926. These works had previously constituted the “Boris Schatz Gallery” at the Bezalel Art School in Jerusalem. The exhibition appears to have been held sometime between the time of this donation and Schatz’s death in 1932.
