Yehudit Shadur

Yehudit Shadur is a foremost participant in the revival of the old Jewish paper-cutting craft. Her work is represented in major museum collections and she has had museum exhibits in Israel, England and the United States. She has co-authored, with her husband Joseph Shadur, a definitive book on papercuts Jewish Papercuts, A History and Guide, for which they received the 1994 Jewish National Book Council prize. Yehudit has also produced numerous serigraphs, the designs of which were based on her original papercuts. Trained in the U.S., she and her husband settled in Israel in 1950. They presently live in Jerusalem.

 Paper Cut - Yehudit Shadur

This is a magnificent 1980 cut by Yehudit Shadur. In the center is the City of Jerusalem, surrounded by the Judean Hills - a heavenly city, the vision of perfect habitation, the House of David where justice and harmony prevail. The surrounding Hebrew text is taken from Psalm 122:

Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem, Jerusalem is builded as a city compact together. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

The dark blue papercut (approximately 12 x 14 7/8") sits above two additional hand colored sheets that provide the gold, olive green, and pastel orange background. With this paper layering the artist has achieved a 3-dimensional effect that increases the impact of the intricately cut image. Signed (Yehudit Shadur) and dated (1980) in both English and Hebrew.

This suite of five paper cuts by Yehudit Shadur illustrates the Book of Job. The artist produced 6 of these suites for this ambitious project. Beneath the primary paper cut are various hand-colored paper fragments which provide the color. The artist has signed each of the five images in Hebrew and English on the lower margin in pencil. The five paper cuts will come with the artist's explanation for each one.
