On Monday, Matthew Baigell, Richard McBee and Daniel Schifrin assembled to discuss the “Golden Age of Jewish Art.”
The session’s main premise comes from a paper by Dr. Baigell concerning Jewish Art, or more accurately art containing Jewish subject matter, given at the Jewish Museum in New York.
Panelists presented evidence showing that artists are engaging with and presenting Biblical and Jewish texts more readily and with renewed force.
Examples presented included work by Archie Rand, Eden Morris, Robert Kirschbaum and Julie Seltzer. Also Ellen Holtzblatt, whose woodcuts were shown, attended and participated in the ensuing discussion.
