“Rabbi” by by Zvi Malnovitzer
A piece by expressionist Israeli artist Zvi Malnovitzer. "Rabbi" is shown focused, enthusiastically reading. The light fall beautifully illuminates his face and arm. Inspired by the portraits of Rembrandt and the Romanticism of Goya, the style of Zvi Malnovitzer is a unique combination of European Expressionism with traditional and religious themes. Born to a ultra-Orthodox religious family in Bnei Brak, he decided to dedicate his art to Haredi Judaism, Holocaust and Exile and scenes from daily life of religious people.
