This stunning serigraph shows the sun breaking through the clouds over the Western Wall. The sunbeams streak through clouds and over the sky, casting bright light over the multicolored sky and illuminating the Western Wall plaza - the most holy prayer site in the world for Jews. Despite the early hour, the plaza is full of men, women and children walking to pray. At the foreground of the canvas sits a tree painted in exceptional detail; silhouetted trees lie behind the Wall. This stunning canvas would make a breathtaking addition to your home, and remind you of Jerusalem's proud heritage every day!
Born in December 1944 in the USSR, Zina Roitman is a renowned Israeli artist best known for her aquarelle paintings and serigraphs (silk prints). Moldavian-born Roitman studied classical art at the Art Academy of Kishinev before immigrating to Israel, and was influenced by a broad range of contemporary artists ranging from Picasso, Matisse, Vasarely, Chagall and various Japanese artists. Her distinctive style includes a remarkable affinity for watercolors and the graphic-oriented work associated with printing, and has earned international acclaim. Roitman’s love of Israel and her delight in its unique landscapes are evident in her work, which has been displayed in galleries across Israel, and in Maryland, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo.
