This is second of two prints Sid Chafetz made of the famous Yiddish author Sholom Aleichem. This version (Chafetz Graphics – Satire and Homage, entry # 118, p.65, 1988) is a 2-color woodcut, black and gold, printed on thin hand-made paper. The artist’s title [Sholom Aleichem (after D.C.)], edition number (15/15) and signature (S. Chafetz) appear in the margin just below the image. The print is in very good condition with only minor aging around the image and gentle folding in the margins.
