This is an original painting by Yitzhak Frenkel using Ink and water color on paper. The artwork is focusing on Mugrabi cinema theatre (1930-1989) that was located in central Tel-Aviv city in Israel for many years.

All the known movies of that time were screened in this place.In 1920, Frenkel established the artists' cooperative in Jaffa and an artists' studio in Herzliya. Later that year, he traveled to Paris where he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts at the studios of the sculptor Antoine Bourdelle and painter Henri Matisse. He was one of the leading Jewish artists of Ecole de Paris. Frenkel returned to Palestine in 1925 and opened the Histadrut Art School in Tel Aviv. His students included Shimshon Holzman, Mordechai Levanon, David Hendler, Joseph Kossonogi, and Siona Tagger. He was a mentor to Bezalel students Avigdor Stematsky, Yehezkel Streichman, Moshe Castel, and Arie Aroch. Frenkel's style was closer to the abstract painting to which he was exposed in Paris than the orientalism that was popular in Palestine at that time. In 1934, he settled in Safed. There he painted the ancient synagogues, narrow lanes, local inhabitants and surrounding countryside. In 1973, his house reopened as a museum showcasing his work. In July 1978, Frenkel had a one-man show at the Orangerie in Paris.
