Lot of four anti-semitic pencil drawings on paper, depicting a large Jewish character with a Star of David necklace holding a child’s cut-off head up in the air, with a burning church in the background; a large Satr of David covered in boots at each star tip, spinning through a town and trampling the people underneath. One smaller drawing depicts a spider with the head of a Jew on top of the world, ‘The Jews’ written above one of the spider’s legs, and a well-dressed larger man with a top hat squeezed into the bottom left corner, a Star of David on his left breast pocket, a large hand pointing towards him from above, the words ‘The Jews’ written above the finger. The large sketches are approximately 8.5 x 12 inches, the smaller pencil sketches are approximately 4 x 7 inches, unsigned.
