Peter’G – First Lesson (Limited Edition Original Serigraph)
Limited Edition Original Serigraph
Size: 25cm x 20.5cm / 9.75” x 12”
This simple and touching serigraph shows the intimacy between a teacher and student, making it a wonderful gift for a special educator. It shows a young child sitting at a book-strewn desk while a bearded, tallit-clad older man watches over him. Shelves stacked with colorful books fill the background, and a solitary bubble floats above the pair, shedding light on the sweet scene. The graduated blue shading draws your eye straight to the center of the image, bringing you into the serene picture. It will add a classic and beautiful touch to the wall of any office or classroom.
Peter Gandolfi was born in Parma, Italy. He graduated from the University of Rome in 1970 with a degree in Chemistry, then went on to lecture and serve as a research fellow in Italy and Israel between 1972-86. In 1982 he settled in Jerusalem, where he increasingly devoted himself to painting and, since 1986, has worked as full time as an artist. His work is characterized by a cartoon-like, whimsical style, bright colors and fantastic detail and often feature Jewish scenes and bubbles. His one-man shows have appeared in Jerusalem, Rome, Tel-Aviv, Haifa and Florence, and books bearing his covers and illustrations have been published internationally.
