Ludwig Blum (1891-1975)

Ludwig Blum was a Moravian-born Israeli painter. He emigrated to Israel in 1923, as part of the Third Aliyah, and became known as "the painter of Jerusalem".

Blum was an academic painter who painted European-style realistic images. He usually painted Israel’s landscapes, specializing in views of Jerusalem and the Judean desert. His ability to capture the unique desert light at sunset is quite remarkable.
