12 School/Style Griselini scrolls|

The family of Italian Esther scrolls from the 1740s produced in the mixed technique in which decorative border is printed and the Hebrew text of the Book of Esther is penned by a scribe. The lower-left corner of each sheet features a printed signature of Francesco Griselini (1717‒1787), the Italian engraver who designed the scheme. The decoration is based on the row of arcades under which individual columns of the Hebrew text of the Book of Esther are inscribed. On the arcades is placed a balustrade with oval medallions flanked by pairs of birds with their heads turned away; these sections are interspersed by flower-filled vases. Lower margins are filled with scenes illustrating the narrative of the Book of Esther, framed in rectangles that are separated by the columns’ bases. The scrolls in this family consist either of four or five sheets with four text panels each. The decorative scheme resembles the ornamentation of Gaster II scrolls.

20 Description

The lavishly decorated scroll whose decorative border is printed while the Hebrew text of the Book of Esther is penned by a scribe. The main part of the pattern consists of a series of arcades, under which the text is inscribed. The text panels are interspersed by columns whose shafts are decorated with different patterns and bases contain a flower. Upper margins are filled with a balustrade on which are placed cartouches flanked by flowers and pairs of turkeys, roosters, parrots, or hoopoes with their heads turned away; on each membrane all four pairs in the same sequence are printed. These sections are interspersed by vases with flowers or small citrus trees. Lower margins are decorated with figurative scenes illustrating the narrative of the Book of Esther set within Italian architecture; they are enclosed in rectangular frames separated by the columns' bases. The scrolls in this family consist either of four or five sheets with four text panels each; the scroll from the IM collection is an exception because it consists of 5 sheets with 18 text columns. In some Griselini scrolls, including the one from the IM collection, a part of the narrative scenes is printed in the improper order; some of them are printed twice in a particular scroll.

20 Description

On the right, the king stands on a pedestal and in his outstretched hands holds a crown which he is about to place on the head of the kneeling Esther. Behind her, three women stand and the scene is witnessed by chamberlains and guards (Es. 2:17). The composition is filled with the buildings that are visible on the left and in the background. Far in the background, behind the buildings (possibly outside the city walls), there is a hardly noticeable gallows with two tiny bodies suspending from it (Es. 2:23).

20 Description

The meaning of the episodes depicted in the frame is not clear. Possibly, the scene on the right shows the king's servants who are talking to Mordecai (Es. 3:3) and another one represents the moment when Haman is informed about Mordecai's attitude toward him (Es. 3:4).

20 Description

The frame below column no. 10 is printed in an improper place. It joins two episodes, and in the scene depicted on the right, between the windows a small number "18" is visible. This suggests that the frame was planned for column no. 18 and in consequence, there is no relationship between the text inscribed in the column and the episodes depicted in the frame below it. The same, disturbed, order of the narrative scenes can be observed in all exemplars of the Griselini scrolls containing four membranes and in the scroll from the Israel Museum collection. In the scrolls representing the same pattern but formed of five membranes, the narrative scenes are printed in the proper order.

On the right, there is a scene that is difficult to interpret. A person (a woman?, Queen Esther?) seated at a table who is accompanied by four men are shown; one of them stands next to the table. The scene on the left depicts the first Purim feast (Es. 9:17-23).

On the right, Haman is hanged on the gallows (Es. 7:10). A ladder leans against it and at its top sits an executioner who holds his legs on Haman's neck. Next to it, a group of guards with spears is standing. On the left, Ahasuerus sits on the throne and Esther kneels at his feet; she is attended by two maid-servants. In the background, there is a figure (Mordecai?) who watches the scene. It can depict either the moment when the king gives Haman's house to Esther (Es. 8:1) or when she pleads with him to annul Haman's decree (Es. 8:3).

The frame is doubled in the scroll; it is present also below column no. 17.

A group of men is shown while fighting in a city square (?). The scene can depict either Jews who battle their enemies, possibly in the city of Susa (Es. 9:5-12) or an additional day of fights of Jews against their enemies (Es. 9:15-16).

On the right, Ahasuerus sits on the throne under a canopy. The crowned Esther, who is attended by her two maid-servants, stands before him; their gestures suggest that they are talking (Es. 9:13). On the left, Haman's sons are hanging on the gallows and they are watched by guards (Es. 9:14).

20 Description

The frame below column no. 15 is printed in an improper place. In the background of the image, on the sky, there is number "14" that in the scroll from the IM collection is barely visible. It suggests that the frame was planned for column no. 14; in the consequence, there is no relationship between the text inscribed in the column and the episodes depicted in the frame below it. The same, disturbed, order of the narrative scenes can be observed in all exemplars of the Griselini scrolls containing four membranes and in the scroll from the Israel Museum collection. In the scrolls representing the same pattern but formed of five membranes, the narrative scenes are printed in the proper order.

On the right, before Ahasuerus seated on the throne placed on a pedestal, under a canopy, stands Queen Esther attended by three maid-servants. Next to the throne, most likely Mordecai and two other men are standing (Es. 8:7-8). The gestures of the king and the queen suggest that they are talking. On the left, there is a long table at which a scribe is seated (Es. 8:9); he is accompanied by three other people.

20 Description

The frame below column no. 16 is printed in an improper place. In the upper part of the image, in its central place, there is number "19" that suggests that the frame was planned for column no. 19; in consequence, there is no relationship between the text inscribed in the column and the episodes in the frame below it. The same, disturbed, sequence of the narrative scenes can be observed in all exemplars of the Griselini scrolls containing four membranes and in the scroll from the IM collection. In the scrolls representing the same pattern but formed of five membranes, the narrative scenes are printed in the proper order.

On the right, the crowned Esther sits at a table and writes the Purim letter that is witnessed by two men who stand next to the table (Es. 9:29); one of them can be Mordecai. Besides them, two guards and two girls are depicted. On the left, a mounted messenger rides towards a city (Es. 9:30); another city is visible on a hill in the upper-left corner of the frame.

On the right, Haman is hanged on the gallows (Es. 7:10). A ladder leans against it and at its top sits an executioner sits with his legs on Haman's neck. Next to it, a group of guards with spears is standing. On the left, Ahasuerus sits on the throne and Esther kneels at his feet; she is accompanied by two maid-servants. In the background, there is a figure (Mordecai?) who watches the scene. It can depict either the moment when the king gives Haman's house to Esther (Es. 8:1) or when she pleads with him to annul Haman's decree (Es. 8:3).

The frame is doubled in the scroll; it is present also below column no. 11.

On the right, Haman who has just arrived in the courtyard of the royal palace is shown (Es. 6:5). On the left, Ahasuerus reclines on a bed and is accompanied by four men. One of them stands before him and reads from an open book to the king (Es. 6:1-3), another one holds a high candle or a torch, and the other two can be guards with a spear in their hands. In the background, there is the gallows prepared by Haman for Mordecai and next to it, three figures are standing; probably they are Haman, his wife - Zeresh, and his friend or Haman and two of his friends (Es. 5:14).
