Moritz “Moshe” Wolkenfeld 1908-1945 36×24 Oil on canvas
This painting is of a Jewish man, the Grandfather of a dear friend of mine, Rabbi David Wolkenfeld. When I saw this photo his face drew me in and I needed to paint his portrait. His story is like so many during the Holocaust. His family was able to escape and he was to follow, but sadly this didn’t happen. He was murdered in a concentration camp in Germany. This painting is more than an homage to him, it is a testimony to all those who perished and an urge to never forget. Anti-semitism is real and growing in our world today. I am proud to add him to my portraiture collection. I am available for portrait commissions.
