Homage to Isaac Wolf


60 x 45 cm (h x w)

acrylic on paper

Isaac Wolff was born on October 27, 1928, in Sittard, the Netherlands. On September 3, 1943, he was murdered in Auschwitz. He was only 14 at the time.

The Germans first took Isaac Wolff to Camp Vught, a concentration camp. From there, he was transported on the so-called children's transport to Westerbork, also known as the KZ "gate to hell," on June 6, 1943. Isaac Wolff was transported to Auschwitz on August 31, 1943, and was killed there.

The portrait is part of a series called "Resonance - Never Forget". For me, portraiture is a form of contemplation about the life of the person, even if I know very little about the individual and their life. The choice of color palette is meant to celebrate the person Isaac was and what he could have become.
