This delicate, colorful masterpiece portrays the very best view in Old Jerusalem - the foliage-rich Mishkenot Sheananim neighborhood, with its iconic Montefiore Windmill, Yemin Moshe. The stunning pastel-shaded sky spans across the windmill, which is surrounded by leafy trees and overlooks a picturesque group of houses in the Artist's Colony. The gentle blue, green and brown shades make this piece both easy to admire, and allow the spectacular details to truly shine!
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.
