Fine Art/Oil on canvas
Who has painted this?
Unfortunately I am sure how to attach a scanned copy of the painting into this messsage but I would be please to send you a cop by e-mail
The images on this canvas (310 x 220 cm.) present a rare and unusual work of great quality picturing the racial and political concerns at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century in Eastern Europe and Russia.
The idea originated probably from the Tiszaeszlar affair in 1881 or the Beilis Case held in Kiev, Russia from 1911 - 1913. Such events were used for political ends.
The artist may have been commissioned to portrait and characterise (anonymously for fear of retribution) such racial ideas resulting from the strengthening of the “Union of Russia People”, a group holding extreme right wing views, influencing the Third Duma, where an official attempt was made to use “Blood Libel” as a weapon against the revolutionary movement and to justify policies towards the Jews in Russia.
If you can provide any further information about the name of the painter please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to send jpeg images to me please keep each image of a reasonable size (not too large), and send them as “attachments”, do not embed them in your email. If you are looking for identification or opinion regarding your painting best would be an image of the front (just the painting, don’t include your lovely living room or pick-up truck), the back (90% of respondents do not send me images of the back, I can obtain nearly as much information from the back as from the front), and close-ups of the signature, details of the brush-work, and any inscriptions or labels (use the macro setting on your camera for these close-ups). You can send this information to my email at email@example.com and make your subject line “allexperts” so I do not bounce you as spam. It would be nice to receive feedback as I do this on my own time with no remuneration, free, no charge, nada. I do NOT research prints or artwork post-1940.
