Regarding Israel, there are 2 artists who come to mind. The 1st is Agam
(I think his first name is Yaacov) and Mordechai Rosenstein (who works
alot with type and illustrations, very graphic). I never did a lesson
based on either one's artwork, or the culture of the Israeli's, but
they're good artists for the history aspect and if your lesson relates
to their work.

While their work may not reflect the traditional artwork of the Israeli
culture, they are contemporary Israeli artists.

There is info about Agam on the web (his artwork), I don't have a
particular web-site, but any search will get you there.

I know this is not exactly what you were looking for, but something
interesting might come from it.
