Abel Pann (Pfeffermann; 1883–1963), Israel painter and draughtsman, born in Kreslavka, Latvia. He studied in Paris under Bourgereau and Toulouse-Lautrec. Pann was a successful painter and cartoonist. He caused a sensation with his drawings of the czarist pogroms (e.g., Nod ha-Dema'ot, The Tear Jug, 1917). In 1913 he went to Palestine, where he eventually settled, and where he executed his chief work, The Bible in Pictures, using local oriental types to depict biblical characters. His intention was to illustrate the Bible in terms of its original setting as seen by a Jew. He was one of the first teachers at the Bezalel School of Art.
