Peter’G – The Big Debate (Limited Edition Original Serigraph)
Limited Edition Original Serigraph
Size: 39cm x 35cm / 15.2” x 13.75”
Set high above the holy city of Jerusalem, this colorful serigraph shows six Hassidic rabbis sitting at a table strewn with heavy volumes, deep in concentrated conversation. They sit below a high, domed ceiling; colored books line the shelves and a single light casts a warm glow over their table. Out the window, a beautifully detailed rendition of the city’s iconic brickwork and buildings rises high into the sky. Bubbles surround the rabbis’ table. Eye-catching and whimsical, this piece will make a gorgeous addition to any Jewish art collection.
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.
