Please view the details of “Jerusalem view” by Ernst Huber
Ernst Huber was born in 1895 and was one of Austria most important landscape artistis in the 1920’s and 30’s. Self-taught painter firstly presented his paintings in Vienna in the autumn of 1919, there Josef Hoffmann noticed him and later introduced to the artistic circle. Ernst Huber traveled over southern Europe, North Africa, South America and painted using mostly watercolors. He was inspired by the paintings of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. In 1928, Huber became a member and regular annual contributor of Vienna Secession and, in 1949, received the title of professor.
His initially dark, dull tones brightened over the years and turned into vivid intense colors. Works by Ernst Huber are held by the Galerie Belvedere, the Leopold Museum, the Graphische Sammlung Albertina in Vienna and by the Oberösterreichisches Landesmuseum in Linz.
“Jerusalem view” depicts the route towards the walls of the Old City. Spectators seem to join a procession of citizens. The deep perspective of roads captivate. Also, everything here looks eternal and filled with harmony. Especially, the artwork conveys the calm and at the same time spiritualized mood.
In addition, Kings gallery offers a great variety of Jerusalem art. For instance, Zvi Raphaeli‘s “Jerusalem alleyway”, “Shabbat walk” and “Jerusalem street” show tiny streets in the center of the Holy City. On the other side is Jerusalem by Ora Nissim full of alussions and symbols. In famous Reuven Rubin’s “Jerusalem” the Temple mount appears to be flying. “Jerusalem view” by Ludwig Blum is more realistic and fascinates with its lightness and clarity. Elchanan Halpern has depicted his personal dream-like “Jerusalem”.
