Haifa, 1979. After repeated disputes, the extended Ohayon family tries to mediate between Viviane (Ronit Elkabetz) and Eliahou (Simon Abkarian) – two people with nothing in common except for their religious-cultural background and their four children. Over the course of several days, the couple quarrels over tradition, love, fears and progress. To Take a Wife is the first chapter in the excellent trilogy by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz that continues with 7 Days (2008) and Gett: the Trial of Viviane Amsalem (2014).

This life-size portrait of a girl is a fine example of the British art of portrait painting in the early 18th century. The child is shown posing on a terrace, which is enclosed at the right foreground by the plinth of a pillar; the background is mainly filled with trees and shrubs.

The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
