Calman Shemi Original Serigraph - Jerusalem 5
Limited edition original serigraph. Signed and numbered by the artist
Size: 53cm x 60cm / 21" x 23.6"
This amazing serigraph is from Shemi's "Jerusalem" series, and is probably the most iconically Jerusalemite piece in the collection. It shows buildings similar to the iconic Great Synagogue and Heichal Shlomoh, bordered by shadowy trees and line-streaked pavements. The mixture of bright, glowing orange hues and muted blues allow the picture's details to truly shine, and highlight the city's complex nature and history.
