The emergence of the professional Jewish artist for the first time in modern history, due to Enlightenment ideas and their influence. Works by twenty-one Jewish artists from England, France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria-Hungary, and the Russian Empire demonstrated the complexities faced by minority artists in a dynamic European art world, and the ways in which these particular artists expressed or shed their Jewish identity. Foreword by Joan Rosenbaum. Essays include: “Reshaping Jewish Identity in Art” (Susan Tumarkin Goodman), “Acculturation of the Jews in Nineteenth-Century Europe” (Paula E. Hyman), “Inside/Out: Jewishness, Imagines, Emancipation” (Nicholas Mirzoeff), “Between Tradition and Acculturation: Jewish Painters in Nineteenth Century Europe” (Larry Silver), “Jewish Naturalist Painters. Understanding and Competing in the Mainstream” (Gabriel P. Weisberg), and “Exhibiting Nineteenth-Century Artists of Jewish Origin in the Twentieth Century” (Richard I. Cohen), followed by “Artist Biographies” (with 19 b&w portrait photographs). Unnumbered basic listing. 72 items.
