Modern Jewish Art
  Lion, Procession

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 06. 1992
The drawing represents a procession moving from left to right. All the various personages follow the small figure of a man in a hat reminding of one of Rembrandt's heroes. The features of the second figure obviously are taken from the famous Leonardo's self portrait drawing. Above his head there is the inscription "Leonardo" , printed in reverse. In the middle of the procession there is a group consisting of a fat naked woman facing a man with aquiline nose,in a wreath on his head, and of one more figure looking at her. All the three are of a smaller size than the rest of the personages. Next to the woman's back there is another woman in a hat of feathers on her head; somebody's face is looking through between her legs. Tall Jew in a hat, typical for Lion's drawings, is the last in the procession. It is flanked by two small figures - of a child sitting in a basin and of a man in glasses. Inscriptions printed in reverse, reminding of a baroque handwriting are made below and above the procession.
