The details of “Jewish wedding”
Zvi Malnovitzer is an expressionist Israeli artist, well known for depictions of Jewish life scenes. Jewish wedding under the starry night is magical. Zvi Malnovitzer illuminates the art work by the combination of light reflections on the ground.
The vague water colors create atmosphere of mysticism. The painting is calm and tranquil, spectators seem to stay near the wedding. Additionally, the painter creates a feeling, that viewers are invited to participate. Fresh evening air, prayers and lights in small windows fascinate. Also, the faces of heroes are alive and passionate. Bright multicolored fancy dresses and the red color of chuppah make the painting more joyous.
Speaking about the plot,
The canopy under which a Jewish couple stand during their ceremony is called chuppah. Especially, it is a symbol of a future home of the couple. The red color of the canopy and it’s central position make the painting striving upward, as Magen David on chuppah corresponds with the bright moon. In particular, the artist has depicted the seven blessings which rabbis recite over a cup of wine (sheva brachot).
