Please find details about “Landscape abstract”
Emmanuel Mané-Katz was a Russian born artist, who was famous for depictions of the Jewish shtetl. The artist moved to Paris during the Civil war. There he took part in the art movement known as the School of Paris. Furthermore, due to participation of many Jewish artists in this movement, Jewish School of Paris was formed. Brighter colors in his later artistic period substituted more somber tints. Apparently “Landscape abstract” has quite intense paints. The artist precisely transmit the bright evening twilight, that quickly envelope the area.
From “Landscape abstract” breathe calm and sincere, that make the viewers feel tranquil and brooding. Endless hills dissolve faraway and capture the attention. Also, in the forefront small houses with their rooves covered with snow look cozy and lulling. The artist invites inside the very closed world, probably, partly imaginary. The shown season can not be defined especially as greenish tree silhouettes overlap with dense layers of snow.
The cliffs seem to be sinister their rounded form create special aura of fabulousness. It seems like the life has stopped there, only wind revives the landscape. All-absorbing silence and echo muted by powder snow reign in this painting. The work leaves spectators spellbound.
Kings gallery has collection of works by Emmanuel Mané-Katz. Singnificantly, the artist won a gold medal at the Paris World’s Fair in 1931 with his painting “The Wailing Wall”. Mané-Katz’s actual home was Paris, however, spiritual one was always the Land of Israel.
