Set in Jerusalem’s picturesque Mishkenot She’ananim neighborhood, this gorgeous scene shows some of the city’s youngest residents celebrating Purim dressed in a stunning array of costumes. They are clustered around a child in mid-air holding a long megilla scroll and surrounded by floating bubbles. Low, red-roofed buildings complete with arched windows and Jerusalem stone walls fill the background, along with the iconic Montefiore windmill. This beautiful, whimsical work of wall art will make a special gift or addition to your own home.
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.
