Description
This etching is from Isaac Bashevis Singer's book, "Satan in Goray," which was the story of a medieval Polish town swept by messianic fervor. Ira Moskowitz produced ten illustrations in etching for the 1981 edition of the book published by Sweetwater Editions, New York. "Satan in Goray" was originally published in 1935 in a periodical format.
