Steffa Reis was born in Berlin in 1931 but emigrated to England with her family in 1937. She studied at Harrow School of Art, at the Royal Academy in London and under Marcel Janco in Israel. In 1957, by now with a family of her own, she moved to live in Israel and became resident artist at the Zefat Artists' Colony. Later, she also opened a studio in Tel Aviv. She has held several solo shows in Israel, UK, Germany and North America. Her London shows included the Ben Uri Gallery in London and the Colin Jellicoe Gallery in Manchester. The Ben Uri permanent collection holds one of her works. In 2010 her autobiography was published and a Retrospective Exhibition of her work was held in Tel Aviv. She is a Member the Israel Painters' and Sculptors' Association.

This painting is crayon on paper and maybe is a view of a street in the old City of Jerusalem. It is in what is probably its original framing, surrounded by a mount behind glass. On the reverse there is a summary, which is also signed, of the artist's career upto the date of the painting. If a purchaser requires posting then for reasons of safety the glass would need to be removed before posting.

£350 now SALE PRICE £260
Very good clean condition though the mount is not of coservation quality and it has not been examined out of the frame.
