Book of Job in Die Bucher Der Bibel (Books of the Bible), 1912, by Ephraim Moses Lilien, Jewish, 1874-1925.
Lilien was an art nouveau illustrator and printmaker. He is sometimes called the “first Zionist artist.”
The scene depicts a Dybbuk which, in Yiddish folklore, is an evil spirit which clings to a person. The story has a long history of two men who vow to marry their children together. When the vow is broken, it unleashes a curse and leads to spirit possession of the young woman.
The Dybbuk became a rare Yiddish cinema ghost story and, sadly, most of the cast died in Nazi death camps. The 1937 film was by Polish writer Michael Waszynski.
