Description

The following description was prepared by William Gross:

At the turn of the century in Eretz Israel, one method of the decorative arts was painting on the back of a glass panel. This piece is one of that type, painted by the famous Jerusalem artist of the period, Moshe Mizrachi . The form is that of a Mizrach, or with the imagery of Jerusalem and the holy places. The depiction of the holy places is very similar to a lithographed amulet from some 15 years later by the same artist and printed by Monsohn in Jerusalem. That print is also in the Gross family collection.
