Talpir, Gabriel Joseph


TALPIR, GABRIEL JOSEPH (1901–1990), Hebrew art critic and poet. Talpir was born in Stanislav, Galicia, and after teaching in secondary schools in Vilna and Zamosc immigrated to Palestine in 1925, and from 1932 became editor of Gazit, a periodical for art and literature.

He published poems in Israel's newspapers and literary journals, as well as essays and articles on literature and art, mostly in Gazit, perhaps the first periodical in Hebrew devoted to the plastic arts. His volumes of poetry include Jazz Band (1927) and Ra'av (1928). Among his works in the field of art are: Ḥannah Orloff, Ḥayyeha vi-Yẓiratah (1950) and Ommanut Bereshit (1952). He also published two art albums, with introductions: Ẓayyarim Yehudiyyim bi-Zemanneinu (1937) and Ẓayyarim be-Yisrael (1964). In addition, Talpir translated several books on art into Hebrew.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
