Vintage Signed Black and White Limited Edition Print Jacques Ochs Holocaust Art
Vintage black and white print of the exodus by Jacque Ochs (1883-1971). It depicts a group of people in a transitory state through a desolate background, some of which can be identified as Jewish elders through their headpieces. Simple and poignant this image has an iconic presence which seems to transcend through time. Without a date it is difficult to attribute a timeline but it is assumed it was done after his internment during WW2.
