"Jerusalem Courtyards" by Israeli artist Yaacov Feldman. The realistic landscape of a desolate yard between old Jerusalem buildings with unique histories and moods. Sand colors make the painting soft and tranquil. Born in Vitebsk, Feldman graduated from Vitebsk Art School in 1987 and studied at the Academy of Textile Design. As the painter wrote: "ordinary things inhabiting artist's pictures, like a garlic bulb, a matchbox, a pair of scissors, can sometimes tell you no less than human characters about the mystery of life."
