Although an Israeli national, Arikha has lived and worked for many years in Paris. However, he visits Jerusalem at frequent intervals and has painted a small number of landscapes there, made under a variety of conditions of light. 'Jerusalem Seen from the South' was painted swiftly in brilliant light and intense heat. Beyond the foreground of harsh and rocky terrain the line of the walls of the old city can be seen, with the golden Dome of the Rock rising beyond, and giving the painting a point of focus.
