The Bar-David Collection includes art works of various techniques such as acrylic, aquarelle, sketching, engraving, lithography and different types of print. The Collection includes works of mainly Jewish artists, from the mid 19th century until today, from artists who have worked in Diaspora and have never lived in Israel, through artists who have immigrated to and settled in Israel, to Israeli-born artists who have worked, and still are, here.

The Collection is  rich in works of well-known artists, as well as artists who are just as talented but less familiar. It includes experimental works, interesting sketches andexploratory works of artists searching for their creative path at the transition between the figurative and abstract movements. The Collection includes works which refer to the Zionist project and give expression to the enchanted Israeli landscape, as well as the humans within it.
