The Story Behind This Painting:
This painting was dissapeared when I moved and can be recreated by order. Each recreation will be slightly different from the original
Very rich in texture with high spiritual emotions. A painting of Jerusalem, the Holy Land, where I carved and sculpted, oil painted this amazing painting for a luxurious hotel, or a fine home. The technique I used makes this scene almost real in the space, you can touch the stones, walls and earth with your fingertips.
The symbol of two nations, Arab and Jews living in Jerusalem among other nations, their religions dont stop them from doing business together, A moment in The Jewish Quarter.
I was inspired by an engraving from 19th century - House of The rich Man Unknown Artist.
The base, the sculpture will be a printed in 3D in a limited edition, I will paint it personally, colors may differ. If you want this as is - the original- please contact me for one of a kind masterpiece.
I like this picture especially because it represents the cosmic nature of Jerusalem. In a narrow and limited street one can be impressed by a lifetime of understanding and respect.

טכניקה: תבליט עם צבעי שמן על קנבס
גודל התמונה: 70 X 100
תאור התמונה: פוקוס על מקטע של "רחוב חי" בירושלים .
מקור ההשראה לתמונה יצירה בשם 'הבית של האיש העשיר ברובע'משנות המאה ה-19 אמן לא ידוע ומכאן הרעיון לבטא מחדש את הסימבוליות לעסקים הנעשים בין הדתות השונות בירושלים.
תמונה זו אהובה עלי במיוחד מכיוון שהיא מייצגת בעיניי את הקוסמיות של ירושלים, במקטע צר ומוגבל ניתן להתרשם מחיים שלמים שיש בהם מן השלמה ופיוס, שיתוף וכבוד.
Jerusalem Street Large Painting Relief Gitty Fuchs
As a child. I lived in New York my parents had a dream - to move to Israel. My mother loved drawing, her talents and passion influenced me as I loved, respected and admired her very much. My father was a student in university finishing his doctor degree. There was more than just an art talent in my family,
As Unrealistic, it seemed. I grew up helping my parents turn their dream into reality. There was no money, but we knew it would happen. I sold lemonade and chocolate chip cookies to passing people on our street saving money to immigrate.
One day - it happened - We Immigrated. It was an unreal dream that came true. I grew up with strong emotions that dreams could come true. I feel that paintings have a role in making dreams come true.
Paintings can look realistic but once you get closer - its fantasy, there is no reality in a painting. By adding bass relief, high texture and sculpture techniques, I feel how unreal takes shape and form. The sculpted scenes become real, enter your life, into your home. You see it on the wall. You have it even though its not physically there.
The real stones, the mountains, ancient biblical walls - all in the fingertips of your hand.
The longing for the Land of Israel, the immigration, the longed-for poetry of Jerusalem of gold, the stories of the Bible.
All this expresses even a little understanding of the dream of being in the Land of Israel.
I sometimes go back in time and think of all the people that love Israel, have a dream to come but cannot do it; I understand their feelings, and emotions. Each of my artwork - as I sculpt, relief, add original stones, sculpt the mountains, and add color and depth. At every stroke, I think how art can fill the gaps of dreams.
It's my shout - to express the reality - Dreams DO come true!!!
I am Influenced by the lithographic works of the Scottish painter David Roberts 1839, who painted a series of paintings of the Land of Israel during a tour in Israel. And inspired by artist Henry A Harper 19th century engravings.
I add power to their art and bring them to life by combining the relief technique that was used on classical Roman and Greek structures.
Medium: Modern art, a combination of Bass Relief and oil painting on canvas
