This is a pair of great vintage to antique Judaica watercolour paintings. Whimsy artworks: one features a Jew man looking for watch, instead sees a diamond; another painting depicts a pair resting under the tree. Looking at these artworks come to mind a humorous stories written by Sholem Aleichem (Sholem Aleichem, pseudonym of Sholem Rabinovitsh, (born February 18, 1859, Pereyaslav, Russia [now Pereyaslav-Khmelnytskyy, Ukraine —died May 13, 1916, New York, New York, U.S.), popular author, a humorist noted for his many Yiddish stories of life in the shtetl.
