Please view details of “Landscape” By Emmanuel Mané-Katz
An expressionist landscape depicts a small village at the foot of the mountain. Muted colors and scattered paints create a perception of entering into the artistic associations and memories. Clouds, rocks and soaring houses are in the swirl. Mané-Katz made an accent on yellow and white tints, this work is much lighter than his “Landscape abstract” presented in our gallery. Contours of mountains are as distant chance guidelines, that the haze will hide in the next moment. Especially the painting appears to be a maze of directions, that strokes point out reminding personal feelings.
Emmanuel Mané-Katz was a Russian born artist, who was famous for depictions of the Jewish shtetl. The artist moved to Paris during the Civil war. There he took part in the art movement known as the School of Paris. Furthermore, due to participation of many Jewish artists in this movement, Jewish School of Paris was founded. Brighter colors in his later artistic period substituted more somber tints.
Kings gallery has a collection of works by Emmanuel Mané-Katz. Significantly, the artist won a gold medal at the Paris World’s Fair in 1931 with his painting “The Wailing Wall”. Mané-Katz’s actual home was Paris, however, spiritual one was always the Land of Israel.
