SINGER, Julius [ca1880–ca1942]
Winter on the Farm
watercolor on paper / 8.5 inches by 12.2 inches / signed
Another piece on loan from Temple Emanu-El, this subtle and sensitive watercolor is the work of an artist who may have been lost to the Holocaust. His dates are uncertain and he may have been confused with another artist of the same date and approximate age who designed bookplates. This work was acquired in the U.K., though the subject is evidently a Central or Eastern European rural setting.
This work was a gift from an anonymous source to the temple’s “Art of the Holocaust” collection [אמנות השואה].
