Gothic Livorno Custom Ketubah

A black and white interpretation of an early 18th century Italian ketubah from Livorno. This reform ketubah has a traditional feel, but a modern sensibility. The bottom, in English, reads, "May these beloved companions rejoice in gladness," a translation of the Hebrew above all the text, taken from the Sheva Brachot / the Seven Blessings.

22x30, india ink and gouache on watercolor paper, 2006.
