Description

A juxtapostion of images from the Von Geldern Haggadah with passages from Heinrich Heine’s celebrated text, to determine whether Heine drew inspiration directly from this Haggadah (which had been commissioned by his great-grandfather). The exhibition also contextualized the Von Geldern Haggada within the framework of illustrated 18th-century manuscripts from Bohemia-Moravia, as well as of illustrated editions of the 19th and 20th centuries of Heine’s works dedicated to Jewish subjects, on loan from Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana (Amsterdam), Bibliothek Germania Judaica (Cologne), Heinrich-Heine-Institut (Düsseldorf), Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Düsseldorf, and private lenders. Introductory and explanatory texts, with listing of exhibits (some in facsimile), according to vitrine. 72 items.
