Around Jewish Art

The seemingly effortless process by which a suitable title is selected for an encyclopedia such as this became exponentially more complex and difficult as I explored the available options and heard the mounting arguments from all sides. Finding the right mix of words was crucial. After pondering the subject for several months in an effort to arrive at the best possible title, I finally opted for "Around Jewish Art."

Artists of Jewish Extraction Who Did Not Paint Judaic Scenes

List of artists of Jewish extraction who painted Jewish scenes or whose works came to reflect their attachment to their roots.

There were also some non-Jewish artists who painted Judaic and Jewish scenes or went to work in Palestine and those who exhibited in Jewish institutions and museums as well as others who have not been identified as being Jewish for sure.

Sculptors and medallists
Probably because of a reference in the Bible to Abraham destroying statues of pagan gods, Jewish artists refrained from producing sculptures representing humans until at least the 19th Century. It was only after 1880, when many Jews benefited from the emancipation process in Central and Eastern Europe that they felt inclined to turn to this form of art.
Many Jewish artists worked as sculptors during the 19th and 20th Century, some of them became quite famous like Chana Orlov, Jacques Lipchitz, Elie Nadelman or Jacob Epstein among others.

Kabakov, Ilya Iossifovitch
Birth - Death : 1933-
Nationality : Ukrainian
Kabakov, who had grown up with an awareness of his ethnic identity though with no knowledge of Jewish religious practice and tradition, studied art in Moscow from 1945 until 1957 and obtained his diploma with illustrations for texts by Sholem Aleichem. He first worked as a children's book illustrator until 1975 and joined the “Boulevard Stretensky” group of conceptual artists. In 1987, he went to Austria and worked in Berlin in 1989 before settling in New York in 1992. Kabakov participated in many exhibitions in the Soviet Union and abroad showing his works and installations. He illustrated over 100 books during twenty years and produced works in which he instilled much humour and derision. A noted avant-garde artist in Moscow, Kabakov was much influenced by Cezanne and Abstract Expressionist artists and produced a series of monochrome works on which he glued usual objects. He then went on to create extraordinary installations relating to urban environment with the help of images and texts. Kabakov, who often condemned the Soviet system in his works and was one of the main exponents of social art in his country, is now considered as a major actor of the Western avant-garde movement.
