About this title
Literary Nonfiction. Art. Middle Eastern Studies. In the 1990s, American painter Anthony Dubovsky visited Jerusalem and found himself drawn to the historic neighborhood of Mea She'arim, whose people follow traditional ways. Dubovsky began walking the streets of the old neighborhood at dawn, before the heat of the day and while the doves were still cooing, carrying his sketchbooks and pens. Soon he had settled into drawing Mea She'arim without quite knowing why, and its people had settled into accommodating him. They let him know them by living. Dubovsky sketched the haredim of Mea She'arim outside the argument. Rather, as with all fine artists, he viewed what he was drawn to with passionate attention, with readiness to see.
"I loved (Anthony Dubovsky's) paintings at the Cue Art Foundation. I admire the scale, the brushwork, the palette, the subjects. In another era, he would be seen as a master."—Arthur Danto
Anthony Dubovsky was born in San Diego, California, in 1945. He studied with Willard Midgette at Reed College, and has lived in Warsaw, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, and Jerusalem. He is the recipient of the first annual Adler Award, and his paintings have been exhibited internationally. He teaches at the University of California, Berkeley.
