Among those who have Mrs. Yellin-Ginat’s works in their collections are: Mary Pickford, Charles Chaplin, Isaac Stern, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur J. Goldberg, Professor Yigal Yadin, and Madame Alix de Rotschild of Paris. “Yellin Ginat has become internationally recognized for her unique collages, which offer the eye-stretching passages of the Negev and the Sinai, of Mount Shlomo near Eilat and Massada in their Dazzling forms and hues. She tears the coloured paper by hand, creating a rippling edge that suggest the ridges of hills and mountains, the wadis and peaks. Sometimes twelve feet long, these vistas are a remarkable mirror of human reflection upon the swallowing of natural contours by light and shadows, in a manner both spectacular and endemic to Eretz Yisrael.” Ori Soltes, Washington Jewish Week
