Vintage poster, 27 1/2" by 19 3/4" in present metal frame, the subject a woman in profile holding flowers, doves in the composition as well, titled "This poster was presented to the Egyptian Delegation on the occasion of President Sadat's Peace Mission to Jerusalem November 1977", the artwork by IRENE AWRET (1921-2014) and her husband AZRIEL AWRET (1910-2010), both noted Holocaust survivor artists. Sadat of course, sadly, was assassinated in 1981. The print is published by Jerusalem Art Prints. Irene Awret was known for painting; her husband, for his sculpture. The couple met in a Nazi camp during World War II. Lucky to survive the war, as Jews who were rounded up in Belgium (to which they had fled from Germany), they were founding members of the Safed art colony in Israel. During the 1970's the couple moved to Falls Church, in Northern Virginia. The poster has some water staining at lower margin and corner areas, as shown. Shipping in a tube (more economical) could be possible. Email to discuss.
