Destinations in Paintings, 2011, p. 161, illustrated. When Footsteps was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1901, young Isaac Snowman had already achieved a great measure of early fame. A year-long study in Paris in the ateliers of William Bouguereau and Benjamin Constant culminated with one of his works being accepted at the 1897 Salon, after which he returned to London to complete his studies at the Royal Academy school. The young artist made a name for himself by painting society portraits and genre paintings that were well received by the public. That same year, Snowman and friends embarked on a trip to Jerusalem that spurred the artist to create a series of paintings with Jewish subjects. Furthermore, he joined the cause of his fellow Jewish compatriots by being a founding member of the group of the Maccabaens, who sought to promote the interests of Jews and the Zionist movement. Around the turn of the century, Snowman's most popular paintings were of young mothers and their children, all dressed in the most fashionable outfits. In an article for The Windsor Magazine, Snowman admits to finding his sitters in the wealthy neighborhood of West Hampstead, near his studio, where local schools supplied him with an endless stream of mothers and children. The parents' vanity is evident, as the artist's requests to paint them were never met with objections (op. cit.). In Footsteps, an elegantly dressed young woman is peering over her shoulder towards the approaching footsteps that visibly interrupt her reading of the letter she is holding in her hand. The comfortable setting in the sun-dappled garden with a beautifully appointed tea table under a large tree acts as an invitation to the viewer to actively engage in the unfolding scene.

Contemplation
Add. Notes: signed and dated 'Snowman/1901' (lower right) oil on canvas 30¼ x 20¼ in. (76.8 x 51.4 cm.)
Notes: La Danseuse au Soleil noir is related to the later print Le Cracheur de Flammes (D. 650), but is presented in a landscape rather than a portrait format, and also bears differences in the background colours. This is confirmed by the certificate written in pencil by the director of the Fondació Miró on the reverse of the sheet. As this is the Bon í  Tirer impression for an edition which was not executed, it may be presumed to be unique.

CATALOGUE NOTE
Isaac Snowman was born in Palestine in1874, but had moved to
London by 1893 when he exhibited his first painting at the Royal
Academy, entitled Tales of a Grandfather when he was
living on the Euston Road. Two years later, he had diversified and
begun to paint sophisticated portraiture and moved northwards to St
John's Wood, the most fashionable area for artists in the late
nineteenth century. A move again in 1898, saw him residing and
setting up a studio on Fortune Green Road in West Hampstead, an
affluent enclave for the Jewish community of London, where he
remained for ten years.
Snowman's themes varied from still-lives to classical drama,
portraiture to modern genre, which proved his adaptability and
willingness to attempt large scale works. His paintings of Jewish
life, often painted in Israel like the present picture, demonstrate
his close links to his homeland. He continued to travel well into
the twentieth century, visiting Jerusalem in 1922, where the
inspiration of the local people and architecture still excited his
interest. Three Rabbis of Jerusalem may have been painted
from sketches made in 1922 or Snowman may have returned to
Jerusalem a year later.
