Mogilev, Russia, 1864 – Jerusalem, Israel, 1945

Aharon Shaul Schur studied art in Vilna, Vienna and Berlin before being invited to teach at Bezalel in 1913. Schur´s work before he left Europe was highly influenced by Parisian Impressionism but once he came to Israel he began to work in a romantic oriental style. At Bezalel he taught enamel, miniature and watercolor. His work is characterized by bright colors and delicate brushwork. Schur liked to work in the miniature and is well-known for his detailed Passover Haggadah illustrations.
