"Fisherman in Israel," Brilliant Midcentury Copper Panel with Repoussé Scene



This rare and brilliantly-worked copper panel depicting a half-nude fisherman surrounded by a Middle Eastern townscape, exotic fish and a sailing boat, was created by A.N. Oppenheim, best known for producing high quality Judaica and enameled dishes in the early years of the Israeli nation. A fine example of midcentury artisanry, with touches of late Art Deco, this unique panel consists of heavy copper washed with a silvery-gray patina. Oppenheim was based in Tel Aviv, and was active in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
