Yankel Ginzburg (American, b. Kazakhstan, 1945), American painter, sculptor, printmaker, and statesman.
Ginzburg was invited by both Begin and Sadat to attend the signing on the White House lawn of the Egyptian-Israeli Peace Treaty in March 1979. In commemoration of this historic event, Ginzburg created “Continuity”, a serigraph print depicting the ‘connection’ of a great ancient Egyptian society to what Ginzburg described as “the future of mankind” sea plants that could provide nourishment to future generations. Dedicated, signed prints of “Continuity” were presented to Begin, Sadat, and Carter.
The “Continuity” Limited Edition Print printed at Zimmerman Editions, Ltd. consists of 200 numbered prints, plus artists proofs and printer’s proofs. Each example is hand-signed and numbered by the artist. In addition are the dedicated prints that were given to Egypt’s President Anwar Sadat, Israel’s Prime Minister Menachem Begin, and the U.S. President Jimmy Carter.
