My most recent fine art discoveries: Jewish painters!

Loved some of the musician paintings – you can feel the music flowing from the instruments and the players… beautiful
And the painting with the couple walking between the two throngs of trees, the thick strokes providing texture, the so very romantic feel of it all…

Gottlieb

And… saved the best for last: Samuel Hirszenberg
This guy is da man! Absolutely loved his sense of composition, among others:

I especially liked A Sabbath afternoon, Portrait of a young man, The last prayer, The wandering Jew (so powerfully disturbing), and, my very favorite: Excommunicated Spinoza
