In marked contrast to his earlier portraits, many of which have a theatrical effect, Meidner later began portraying his subjects in a more realistic fashion. These portraits were also idealized, of course, and many incorporated his own features. Devout Jews came to replace the costumed, dramatically portrayed prophets, zealots and skeptics of his earlier works.
