Artistic renditions of Jewish ritual: "Dreamers of the Ghetto: At the Wailing Wall, Jerusalem"; print of painting by Isaac Snowman, on full page (753) of the 24 May 1898 issue of the British "The Illustrated London News" publication; full size: 29.7 x 39.7cm. Left edge displays crop marks; suitable for framing. Snowman (1873 - 1947) was a famous British-Jewish artist in his time, who emigrated to Palestine to continue his work; said to be one of Queen Mary's favorite artists; his older brother Jacob Snowman was a doctor and prominent mohel, who circumcised Charles, Prince of Wales. Although the picture's subtitle indicates that the depicted lamentation is a daily ritual, the image - particularly of men without the customary 'Tefilin' on their forehead and hands - is probably of the Tisha be'Av day of fasting and lamentation.
