Pencil signed etching of a religious man leaning on a staff, numbered 48/100 and pencil signed along with "Jerusalem" in lower right margin, by well listed Israeli artist JAKOB (also Jacob and Yaakov) EISENBERG (1897-1966). Eisenberg was born in Pinsk, Russia and emigrated to Israel in 1913. He was educated in the School of Arts and Crafts in Vienna and at the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, where in later years he also taught. Today he is considered part of the "Bezalel School". Eisenberg created oil paintings and murals, as well as stained glass and ceramic works. The print is in typical condition for something of its age---oxidized, browned paper, evenly toned, and with several foxing spots. Not examined out of frame. Measurements 9 3/4" by 5 1/2" inside the present mat, and 15 1/2" by 10 3/4" as framed.
