Steinhardt's paintings from the "Pathetiker" days are very rare and hardly offered on the German auction market.

Jakob Steinhardt, born in Zerkow near Poznan in 1887, studied in Berlin under Lovis Corinth and was a close friend of Ludwig Meidner. He completed his artistic education on visits to Paris and Florence. After World War I, which he predominantly experienced in Lithuanian villages with a mostly Jewish population, the depiction of Jewish life became Steinhardt's main theme. Poverty, melancholia and humility of the people are strikingly depicted in his expressive works. [CB].
