Samuel Hirszenberg (Lodz 1865 - Jerusalem 1908) was a Polish painter. For his painting "Yeszybolen", he received a silver medal at the Paris Exposition of 1889. He studied in Munich with Gottlieb; there he would have had occasion to see the Kaulbach painting: The Destruction of Jerusalem by Titus (An Anti-Jewish Allegory).

He initially painted genre scenes, then landscapes, portraits, decorative compositions and symbolic scenes with Jewish motifs and later postimpressionistic landscapes and portraits of the Jews and Arabs. [1]
