Yehudis Yelin Jerusalem lithograph, 9×13


This lithograph of Jerusalem by Yehudis Yelin uses a similar technique, but in reverse. Where Rosenthal’s lithograph’s subject was extraordinarily detailed with no background, this lithograph creates a full image, but does not have an abundance of detail. It’s clear that it is Jerusalem, but what era of Jerusalem are we looking at? The massive stones that make up the walls are not clearly marked, and there is not a person in sight.
