Ukraininan born Shmuel Charuvi (1897-1965) studied art in Odessa where he met the founding inspiration of the Bezalel School, Professor Boris Schatz. Under Schatz’s influence Charuvi subsequently moved to Jerusalem. There, the Mediterranean sunlight encouraged Charuvi’s romantic use of warm colors, producing delicate Eretz Israel scenes in a style that became known as ‘Jerusalem realism.’ <<Provenance: >>Mayanot Gallery, Jerusalem, 1993, who acquired it from the artist’s family.
