moreA great Mixed media on board by the noted artist William McCloy. I believe this work represents Jerusalem as you can see a mosque top, a church and a wall, symbolic of the dome of the rock, the church of the Holy Sepulchre and the wailing wall. It is not signed but purchased from his estate. Based on the style we thick this is a 60-70's painting.
