Share Your Talents With Those That Appreciate It

On Tuesday evening on Manhattans Upper East East, over 250 specially invited guests attended an exclusive art exhibition and sale held at the sumptuous townhouse of the distinguished Kenneth Laub.

The event was to introduce New Yorkers to the life and work of Nissan Engel, an internationally acclaimed, Bezalel-trained Israeli artist who died this past fall at the age of 85.

Organized by Michael Bolla and Engel’s widow Micheline (Micky), a former Chanel model with a prominent and far-flung social circle, together with the Israeli Consulate in New York, Cunsul Aviad Ivri, and a worldwide group of influential friends and collectors, the event celebrated Engel’s work in advanacing his global legacy.

Locally, Engel’s stained glass windows adorn several synagogues in America.

Having spent most of his life in Normandy, France, where Micky still lives in a home that includes his gallery, he was a fixture on the European art scene for decades.
