Author: Baskind, Samantha ; Larry Silver
Price: Not Available
Description: London: Reaktion Books, 2011. 25cm., pbk., 311pp., 148 illus., several in color. Summary: Covering nearly two centuries, Jewish Art examines the art made by Jews across Europe, America, and Israel. Through nearly a hundred and fifty illustrations, many published here for the first time, Samantha Baskind and Larry Silver present a broadly accessible survey of Jewish art. Baskind and Silver ask specifically “What is Jewish art?” and examine the ambiguities of the Jewish experience, both religious and cultural. Rather than providing reductive classifications of the subject, they consider the variety of ways Jewish artists have defined themselves and their works. Looking at the work of European and American artists, including Moritz Oppenheim, Maurycy Gottlieb, Camille Pisarro, Marc Chagall, Myriam Schapiro, Eva Hesse, Barnett Newman, and Archie Rand, in addition to contemporary Israeli artists, Jewish Art provides a comprehensive and approachable account of a complex subject.
