Oil on Masonite extensive landscape of orange groves and palms and distant snowy mountains, the scene likely the Sea of Galilee area with the Golan Heights in northeast Israel, the painting measuring 20 1/2" by 25 1/2" (27" by 32" as framed), signed at lower left in Hebrew and at lower right twice, faintly, in Roman letters "Peysac". This painting is a typical work of the noted German-Israeli artist ARYE LEO PEYSACK (1894-1972). Peysack was born in 1894 and trained in Germany. He immigrated to Palestine in the early 1920s, traveled extensively around the country and captured the landscapes of the Holy Land. He immigrated to Palestine in the early 1920s, traveled extensively around the country and captured the landscapes and the people. Some works, dating to as early as 1924, have come to auction. There's a tiny fragmentary typed label on the front of the frame, at extreme lower left that says "Pesach Pesi" or similar. There is a streak of foreign matter that can be cleaned off, showing as darker diagonal streak in sky. This is a very decorative, colorful, impressionistic painting that will be a pleasing addition to your home or office. The frame has some wear and you might want to completely reframe or replace the somewhat soiled linen liner.
