This abstract serigraph depicts Safed in wonderfully warm colors. The tall buildings and communal streets are portrayed in glowing shades of yellow, interspersed with religious couples and green trees. This piece is a wonderful way to bring a touch of Israel to your home.
One of Israel's four Holy Cities, the historic city of Safed lies in northern Israel. Shrouded in mystery and intrigue, Safed is the subject of much Jewish art and literature, and today is home to a thriving artistic culture based on Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism).
Nahum Gutman was born in Romania and immigrated to Israel in 1905, where he began studying art at Bezalel in Jerusalem. He soon rebelled against the traditional teaching methods, and ploughed ahead alone to create his own distinctive style. His art depicted a hidden, exotic Middle East, and won him acclaim both in Israel and across the world. Gutman was also a celebrated children’s author and illustrator, even winning the Israel Prize for Children’s Literature. His work is displayed in the eponymous Gutman Museum in Tel Aviv.
