An etching on paper, measuring 14 1/2" by 10 1/4" inside the mat (21 1/2" by 16 1/2" as framed), signed in pencil at lower left margin and numbered 29/150 at lower right margin, with a dedication (in the plate) at upper left and date 5 November 1906, by the noted German Jewish artist HERMANN STRUCK (1876-1944). The subject is a bearded man wearing a yarmulke. Struck was born in Berlin of 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: a clean, nicely-inked, rich impression, with some light puckering visible at left edge; no foxing nor water stains. Not examined out of the frame. Allow for reflections in some images (photos taken at angles to reduce reflections).
