The film Jerusalem Image and Art was produced by the Film Service collaborating with the Israel Broadcasting Authority.
Announcer Irving Kaplan tells how the image of Jerusalem has been seen in the eyes of artists throughout the ages. The artists who were influenced by the three religions expressed this in their work, so the mosaic floors and paintings of Jerusalem at that period were surrounded by religious symbols. European artists painted it out of imagination, so Jerusalem often appeared in their paintings with motifs of the cities in which they lived. Others drew it from depictions of crusaders, surrounded by mountains and with the addition of imagination and dramatic light. At the beginning of the 20th century, the artists began to paint from a realistic perspective that allowed them to give it a modern expression in their work.
