Hirszenberg’s painting (The Wandering Jew) is considered the second Jewish example of a Wandering Jew painting, after the 1876 self-portrait Ahasuerus by his mentor Maurycy Gottlieb. Avraham Ronen suggests Gottlieb’s painting was a response to Wilhelm von Kaulbach’s antisemitic The Destruction of Jerusalem, wherein a Wandering Jew figure is tormented by raging demons.
