Modern Jewish Art
  Zaltsman, Masks and a woman

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 09.1995
Five masks and a nude are depicted in the left and in the right parts of the drawing correspondingly. The masks are set in three rows. In fact, these are faces cut from different sides and thus having strange angular shapes. A single mask is depicted in the central upper part. This is a young face cut from the right and at the forehead shown in a slight turn to the left. Two masks of men in the middle row are facing right. The left mask represents a man with a sadly lowered eyes. The shape of the mask resembles a rhombuses. The other mask represents a frowning man with a very sharp triangilar nose and thin mouth. He looks askance at the viewer. His face is cut at the forehead and from the left. The masks in the lower row have more roundish shapes though they are cut at the forehead. The left mask is slightly turned to the left. It represents a man with a melancholical expression: with lowered eyes and curved thin mouth. The last mask is a face of a youth with a an elongated even face oval, straight eye-brows and slightly open lips. It is shown at a slight angle to the right. The nude in the right part of the drawing is represented walking to the right. Her hand is stretched rightwards. Her head, however, is turned back. She has a long hair and a strange turban-looking hairdress on her head. To her right, in the upper corner of the compositions one can see a bunch of primitively shaped houses. The background is filled with facets of various hues of black and white.
