Samuel 6:14 - King George Street, Jerusalem.

Oil on canvas. Titled and signed by the artist upper and lower right. Framed. 39 x 34.5 inches; 99 x 88 cm.

Jerusalem, 1980.

Born in West Virginia, Schwebel (1932-2011) studied at the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University. He spent a year traveling through Europe and in 1963 permanently settled in the village of Ein Karem near Jerusalem. The present painting was commissioned directly from the artist by the consignor and features the later's Jerusalem residence. The association with the Book of Samuel as titled on the canvas, relates to the patron's Hebrew name and date of birth. For further discussion of this painting, see Milly Heyd, King David Modernized: Ivan Schwebel and Contemporary Sources, in: Jewish Art, Vol. 12-13, (1987) pp. 337-48.

Commissioned directly from the artist, 1980.

The Jewish Museum, New York, The Batkin Collection of Israeli Art (1985). Catalogue p. 28.
