Vanity of Vanities and all sorts of fuss – Isaac Asknazy

Vanity of Vanities and all sorts of fuss   Isaac Asknazy

The artist’s biggest, most serious and last work was written in 1900 – the painting “Ecclesiastes” or “Vanity of vanities.” It was exhibited even at the Paris exhibition in 1900.

The painting depicts the king Solomon of Jerusalem, sitting on the throne, his thoughts are gloomy, his lips whisper: “Vanity of vanities, all the fuss.” The artist depicts the king as a lonely, long-abandoned child. Only two faithful servants – the bodyguard and the secretary remained with him. Servants with close attention are watching the movement of his lips, and the secretary writes down on the blackboard the statements of a wise king.
