Art Alone
© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Khaimovich, Boris, 1994

This painting depicts the intimidatingly massive and ochre-colored Jaffa Gate. The city wall extends to the left of the gate while a palm grove flourishes to the right. Pedestrians and camel-riders are depicted traveling down the road toward the gate as they cast blue shadows.

The inscription reads:

מבוא יפו

(Jaffa Gate).
