Jewish art and culture
In this beautifully 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 order, 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-centuryartists 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.
