(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)
An interesting find was made when a hitherto unknown drawing by Josef Israels, the famous Dutch Jewish painter, was discovered.
During repairs made in a certain shop in the center of Groningen. Joseph Israels’ birthplace, the workmen found a charcoal drawing on the plaster of one of the walls. As Israels’ parents once lived in this house, inquiries made by the Museum of Art confirmed the fact that the drawing was made by Joseph Israels. The drawing is being covered with glass and suitably framed for preservation.
