Lithograph on paper, 7 1/2" by 4 1/2" (13 1/8" by 10" as framed), signed in pencil at lower right by the noted German Jewish artist HERMANN STRUCK (1876-1944). The subject is a man wearing a cap. Struck was born in Berlin or Orthodox Jewish parentage. Early in his life he met the Zionist leader Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), a meeting which profoundly influenced the artist. Struck's most desirable subject matter, scenes of Israel from the late 1920's, have brought to the $25,000 area at auction. He painted portraits, landscapes and historical subjects. See the net for more information on the artist. CONDITION: Very good, with light paper oxidation, some light creasing visible at top (to the left of the hat) and diagonally at lower right portion; no foxing nor water stains. Not examined out of the frame. Allow for reflections in some images (photos taken at angles to reduce reflections). .
