Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita: Horned Owl, blank journal
Truly cool and unique gifts are hard to come by, so we created this Journal Edition:
Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita (1868-1944) was a Jewish-Dutch artist active in Amsterdam during the late 19th to early 20th century. He produced batiks and block-printed fabrics, which were sold by Amsterdam interior design stores and combined these activities with teaching at the School of Architecture and Ornamental Design in Haarlem. 1944 Samuel was deported together with his wife and son to Auschwitz, where he perished. Some of Samuel’s friends were successful in rescuing some of the works that had remained in his home.
Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita had another great lost gift. That of wisdom. He persuaded a young man named Escher to give up his architecture studies and persue a career as an artist. Without Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita we would have no M. C. Escher.
