Oil on canvas painting of an old rabbi or holy man, 22" by 18", (28" by 24" framed), signed at lower right in English and Hebrew by the listed Jewish artist JEHUDA RODAN (1916-1985). The impressionist work was likely created circa the 1960's. Rodan painted landscapes of modern Israel, which appear with some frequency at auction there. Born in Transylvania (present day Romania), he studied medicine in the 1930's at Nancy, France. By the last years of that decade he had evidently made a change, studying art with the Hungarian painter Adolf Fenyus. During World War II Rodan was a forced laborer in a concentration camp, but he survived the war and went on to paint in the post-war years, heading a Romanian artists' group. This painting has uneven canvas surface and very little varnish, as well as a curving cut at lower right, hidden in the design, that is not quite a puncture or tear. Despite the condition issues you could hang this Judaica on the wall and enjoy the traditional and sensitive portrait for what it is.
