Rabbi with Torah, Oil Painting by Donald Roy Purdy
This oil on board portrait of a rabbi with torah is by Donald Roy Purdy (American, b.1929). An excellent example of the artist’s unique style of realism and direct observation of subject. The influence of Impressionism can be seen in the loose brushstrokes and impressionistic background. A strong work of art. Gilded frame. Signed lower left.
