German-born Jakob Steinhardt (1887-1968) emigrated to Palestine in 1933 following studies in the Academie Julian, Henri Matisse’s School in Art in Paris. In the present painting one can experience Matisse’s Fauvist influence - bold visual or ‘painterly’ brushstrokes, strong colors and a subjective view of nature.
