Boris Schatz (1867-1932) was born in 1867. He was sent for rabbinical studies in Vilna, the "Jerusalem" of Hebrew learning in Eastern Europe. The big city extended his horizons. After a short while he traveled to Paris where he achieved his maturity as an artist along with fame and success for he accepted the invitation from the King of Bulgaria to become the court's artist and head of the Royal Academy and Museum in Sofia, Bulgaria. Prof. Schatz had founded the famous and prominent Bezalel Art School in Jerusalem. Only a man with full devotion and great insight could, in 1905, dream that Jerusalem would become the capital of the Jewish State and center of art and Hebrew culture. In addition Schatz was one of the founders of the Bezalel National Museum in Jerusalem that along the years became Israel's largest and most famous museum, the Israel Museum. His devotion to the idea of Bezalel and its realization has added to his own artistic expression. The mixture of Jewishness and art inspired his work. His preferred media was bas-relief which he mastered with elegance and power. Allowing light to play on his silver cast creations, he portrayed Jeremiah the Prophet, Ben Yehuda, Jewish woman blessing the candles and more. His subject matters, dignified and proud, were taken from biblical heritage, traditional Jewish life and faces of inspiring Jewish personalities. Schatz died in 1932 and is definitely considered as the father of Israeli art.
Midnight Prayer portrays a Jewish old man raising his eyes and hand while praying. At his side is a candle lighting his praying book. This is a finest example of Schatz's remarkable plaques.
