Joseph Budko (1880 Plonsk-1940 Jerusalem) was a student of Hermann Struck who contributed internationally to the development of etching and created prints representing views of Israel and Jewish culture in various lands. Budko followed Struck’s lead and turned to graphic art. He developed a style that combined personal attitude with Jewish mentality, a synthesis of Jewish tradition and modern artistic approach. He also revived the spirit of Jewish book illustration, elevating it to modern design.
