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."

PART I
Artists of Jewish Extraction Who Did Not Paint Judaic Scenes

PART 2
List of artists of Jewish extraction who painted Jewish scenes or whose works came to reflect their attachment to their roots.


PART III
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.

PART IV
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.

Ofek, Abraham
Birth - Death : 1935-1990
Nationality : Bulgarian then Israeli
Born in Bulgaria, he immigrated to Israel in 1949.Abraham Ofek's artistic credo saw the imprinting of social values on the work of art as a moral mission. He simplified content in order to convey a direct and clear message in expressionistic monumental wall paintings inspired by South American and especially by Mexican murals. Abraham Ofek's preoccupation with social content yielded saga-like representations of unfolding Israeli reality: immigration, settlement, and the building of a new life in the resurrected homeland. Abraham Ofek, like his colleague Naftali Bezem, with whom he worked in close communion during the early years, saw the large walls of public buildings as a forum for visual communication of national ideas. The churches and the Arab buildings in Abraham's Ofek's landscapes are typical features of his depictions of Jerusalem scenery. He also executed several murals in Jerusalem in the 1970s having the migration of the Jews and their return to Zion, the mother figure as a central theme and the joy of salvation as the culmination for the return to the Promised Land.
