Cedars of Lebanon: The Rothschild of the Painters
One chapter from Moritz Daniel Oppenheim’s Erinnerungen, translated by me from the German original, has already appeared in this department, in the October 1954 number. The present selection from the same book (written about 1880, shortly before the artist’s death, but published only in 1924) describes the Jewish painter’s rise to fame. After four years of study in France and Italy, Oppenheim, at the age of twenty-five, returned to Frankfort on the Main in May 1825.
