Renowned artist Helen Bar-Lev paints beautiful landscapes, so it is not surprising that she lives and works in Metulla, once had a studio in Safed, travels to Italy to find the most beautiful subjects for her art and exhibits in Haifa.

After all, the north of Israel and indeed Italy are famous for their verdant countryside and quaint villages, winding alleys and homes with picturesque doors and windows.
