An examination of art through the lens of Jewish culture and history. In this illustrated book, Rabbi and art historian Edward van Voolen has brought together numerous works that expand our view of Jewish life and art. Organized in a loosely chronological format, this book introduces readers to works that reflect the dramatic events of the past and explore the eternal search for Jewish identity. He points out the Jewish aspects of works by predominantly nineteenth and twentieth-century artists such as Modigliani, Pissarro and Frida Kahlo, among others, and discusses these themes within the paintings of Barnett Newman and the sculpture of Richard Serra. His accompanying text explores the connection between Judaism and art and culture, helping readers approach familiar images through a new and exciting perspective.
