Lot Number 408

Engraving – Joseph Budko – Figure of a Jew

Figure of a Jew – engraving by Joseph Budko. Signed in pencil and numbered III.
At the center, painted with dark shades, an old figure of a Jew is leaning on a stick, looking downwards. Behind the Jew, on the cross, the lower body part of Jesus. Parts of a fence separate between the figure and the cross. "The fence symbolizes, of course, the barrier isolating the Jew from the world. This is an old, unstable, fence, easy to break through, but Budko shows how it continues to imprison the Jew".(See: HaMachsan shel Gideon Ofrat, Joseph Budko – Monograph, 2005).
12X17 cm, framed: 28X25 cm. Good condition, minor spotting on signature. Not examined out of frame.
