Etched portrait of Albert Einstein by well-known Polish-American Jewish artist Lionel S. Reiss. Signed by both Einstein and Reiss. In fine condition. Double matted and framed, the entire piece measures 13.5 inches by 16.5 inches. An exceptional piece.

Polish-American Jewish painter Lionel S. Reiss immigrated with his parents to the United States in 1898 at the age of four, joining the ranks of other Eastern European Jews fleeing their native countries at the start of the 20th century. His family settled in New York's Lower East Side where Reiss would ultimately spend the majority of his life and become an established portraitist, particularly known for his intimate portraits of Jewish people. In 1938, Reiss published his book My Models Were Jews in which he argued against the idea of a singular "Jewish Ethnicity" and that the Jewish people were rather a cultural group composed of a number of significantly diverse communities.
