Books, Manuscripts, Maps at Kestenbaum & Co. on March 16

Kestenbaum & Company will be featuring Isidor Kaufmann’s painting entitled “A Young Jewish Bride” (lot 1) in their upcoming auction of Fine Judaica to be held on Thursday, March 16th. The subject of a Jewish woman is one that was seldom created by Kaufmann, making this particular artwork most desirable. The painting has been exhibited over the years at both The Israel Museum and at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. It was acquired decades ago directly from Philipp Kaufmann, son of the artist, and has now been consigned to Kestenbaum for auction by descendants of the original owner.
