Lot 100 "Jerusalem – Flowers‘ Gate" - Blum Ludwig (1891-1974)

an exceptional offer, 81 x 101 (framed 96 x 116) cm
calling price: CZK 295 000

 

 

  

During our twenty year-long auction activity we have sold at auctions in Brno, Prague and Slavkov four oils on canvas by Ludwig Blum – an atypical portrait of a Card Reader, a small landscape with a palm tree and two large paintings of Jerusalem. Unforgettable was the painting depicting a view of the whole of Jerusalem from 1935 in the shades of red. Similar colours were used in the painting „Camels in the Judean Desert“ from 1943 which was one of the paintings that featured in an exhibition of selected works by Ludwig Blum in the London based Ben Uri Gallery in 2011. (*1)


A different colour scheme is used in the painting included in this auction. It depicts a scene in front of a gate called „Herod’s Gate“ or „Flowers’ Gate“, which is a part of the ancient walls surrounding the Old City of Jerusalem. It is one of Ludwig Blum´s favourite scenes. A similar painting is presented for example on the website of the Jewish Community in Brno (*2). The painting "Market in Jerusalem" which is comparable to the painting offered at our auction (both in the topic and size) was sold at auction by Sotheby´s on June 27th 2007 for USD 71.957, final price including the buyer´s premium was USD 86.348 (www.artprice.com).


We cannot speak for other paintings but the paintings depicting views of Jerusalem that were offered at our auctions were breath-taking when viewed in person; their special aura cannot be transferred by a photographic image.

Ludwig Blum – painter, born in Brno-Líšeň. First went to a Czech School, followed by a German Gymnasium. His studies of Arts in Vienna where interrupted by the First World War and concluded later at the Prague Academy. In 1923 he fulfilled his dream and moved to Jerusalem where he spent the rest of his life. Prior to the Second World War he travelled back to Czechoslovakia very often not only to visit his large family (9 siblings) but mainly to promote his work. His exhibitions in Czechoslovakia were commercially very successful. There was a great interest in his biblical scenes as well as in his oriental landscapes. His most famous are the views of Jerusalem. The auction database ARTPRICE itself records 451 sales of Blum´s oils, his works reach consistently high prices. He received the honorary award "Yakir Yerushalayim" in 1968, an award reserved for special citizens of the City of Jerusalem (Toman, (*2)).
