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.

Paldi was one of those early artists who sought their new path by identification with the singular life and living of Israel, both its Oriental and modern aspects, yet by looking at them through the eyes of an Expressionist painter. Born in the Ukraine, he immigrated in 1909 and attended the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem. Paldi pursued his studies in Munich and joined during the 1930s a group of artists who sought to free themselves of the local ideology and base painting on purely formal and chromatic values. In the 1950s, Paldi created coloured relief paintings with flowing, amorphous-abstract forms. Toward the end of the 1970s, he began to integrate imaginary motifs drawn from the animal and floral world, frequently also depicting exotic-looking birds. Paldi was a recipient of the Dizengoff Prize in 1943 and 1957.
