This view of Jerusalem is of what is now known as the ‘Western Wall Plaza’, which includes the Western or ‘Wailing’ Wall, located within the old city of Jerusalem at the foot of the western side of Temple Mount. To the left is the Mosque of Omar. Above the Wailing Wall, is the gilded dome of the Dome of the Rock, located opposite the southern courtyard of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

This image was “editioned” at 100 but only 15 were actually printed. This impression is from the personal collection of the artist’s wife, Freidl and has a red “F.P.C.” (Freidl Pollak Collection) in the lower margin.
