Marcel Janco – Ein Hod 1954
Edition of 150
Ein-Hod is a beautiful image of the landscape surrounding the artists’ village Ein-Hod that was established in 1953 on the hills of Mount Carmel near Haifa. The village houses are seen at the back beyond the pine trees covering the mountains. At the front of the print a group of Arabic men and women traverse slowly with their donkeys and equipment.
Janco’s use of sharp and geometric shapes along with the accentuated black silhouettes of the white houses and of the figures demonstrate his expressive and unique style.
