They really have the authentic "shtetl feeling," as anyone who has visted the villages of Eastern Europe must agree.

It is interesting that the influence of Chagall pervades so much Jewish art, present company included. I guess this is because Chagall created an expressive and mystical visual language for us, when we had so few precedents in the visual arts.

Exquisite - like everything else on this gorgeous site of SJ, the web's rose among thorns. Warm regards from lovely Eretz Yisroel.

Space Cadet: It is so nice to see you back again. I knew that a posting of paintings would get your artistic soul commenting.

An interesting sense of both Chagall and also Russian Primative icon paintings.
Some of these paintings verge on Daliesque amd even Rene Magrite.
Not so much by what is there, but by subtle suggestion and visual poetry.
A nice diversion to our current worries.
