Description

A major exhibition on Jewish artists who participated in the modern art movement, mounted in the footsteps of an earlier show on the same topic (also curated by Avram Kampf [#511]). Each of these artists was shown to have responded in his work to world events in general and Jewish themes and concerns in particular. Text largely reproduced from the original publication, with new passages and images added to reflect the current exhibition. Includes the essay “The Quest for a Jewish Style, Sources of Jewish Folk Art”. Basic entries. 360 items.
