In this limited edition serigraph Samuel Wodnitzky depicts his hometown. Wodnitzky was born in Kazimierz (Kuzmir), Poland where he studied his craft at Art Academy, Poland. He later immigrated to Israel in 1934. His recollections of the Jewish tradition of the quaint Eastern European town translates into his artistic style. The bleak colour scheme and simple artistic style represent the hardships faced by the villagers. Meanwhile the colourful strokes and picturesque scene represent the cherished memories Wodnitzky has of this life. It thus, becomes apparent why Wodnitzky was also awarded Tel Aviv's Dizengoff Art Prize in 1942. The serigraph is printed on paper and signed by the artist in the bottom right corner.

    SAMUEL WODNITZKY Samuel Wodnitzky was born in Kazimierz, Poland. He studied at the Art Academy, Poland and immigrated to Israel in 1934. Wodnitzky's charming shtet'l is the rebirth of his native village through the eyes and hand of the artist. Although an enduring naivete infuses his work, there is no lack of skill in the technical or organizational aspects of his artistry. Indeed, the artlessness of his works is more wonderful as a triumph of simple feeling over knowledge. Dependent entirely upon his vivid recollections of the village of Kuzmir (Kazimierz) and the Eastern European Jewish way of life which no longer exists, Wodnitzky revives his youth in his works. But where a less discriminating artist might easily fall prey to the sentimentality inherent in such a project of reminiscence, Wodnitzky recreates his town and townspeople with objectivity, never sloughing the artistic problems of his profession. Wodnitzky received the Dizengoff Prize in 1942. He has had several one-man shows in Tel-Aviv and has participated in group shows in Jerusalem and Johannesburg.
