Encyclopedia > Anna Ticho

Anna Ticho (1894-1980) was born in Moravia, which was then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, modern-day Czech Republic. At the age of 15 she began to learn the art of drawing in Vienna. In 1912 she moved to Israel (then known as Palestine) with her cousin Dr. Avraham Albert Ticho, who later married her. The two moved to Jerusalem where Dr. Ticho opened an eye clinic and Anna worked as his assistant. In the house that the Tichos both lived and worked in, Anna hosted local and British government officials, artists, writers, academics, and intellectuals, some of whom came from outside of Israel. Throughout the 1930s, Anna progressed in her technique and refined her style, drawing many pictures of the hills and figures, and landscapes of Jerusalem. Her works can be found today in many important museums world-wide. Toward the end of her life, Anna decided to donate her house, the art collection that was in it (including many of her own works) as well as a number of other items that her husband had collected over the years, to the people of Jerusalem. Ticho House still operates to this day and is a branch of the Israel Museum.
