"[This] magnificent catalog is a major contribution and gives fresh insights into a significant Jewish painter of nineteenth-century Germany."-National Jewish Post and Opinion Oppenheim was not only the first Jewish painter of the modern era, he was also the first painter who dealt explicitly with his Jewishness. After studying in Munich, Paris and Italy, he settled in Francfort and established himself as a respected painter who received commissions for portraits from the Rothschilds and Heinrich Heine. Influenced by the Nazarenes, he also depicted numerous Biblical scenes, and later treated historical and literary subjects. In addition, he made a name for himself as a genre painter, and created his famous cycle on Jewish religious and family life.
