Description

'In his most characteristic works, he was therefore, inspired by the life of the German metropolis, by the characters whom he could observe in its streets and cafés, by the city-scapes of its rainy streets. The rain-swept skies and the passers-by that almost fade into the surrounding mists which rise from the shining sidewalks are features of his favorite topics. Above all, he remains a subtle colorist.' (Ernest M. Namenyi, “Jewish Impressionists” in Cecil Roth (ed.), Jewish Art- An Illustrated History, Tel Aviv, 1961, p. 611).
