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.

Working as an abstract artist, he became Henry Moore's assistant between 1951 and 1953 and traveled to the U.S, where he discovered David Smith's works. Caro took part in many exhibitions from 1956, in London, Milan, New York and Paris. At the start, he worked under the influence of Rodin and then under that of Moore. Following his trip to the U.S, he decided to use steel as a medium rather than bronze or terracotta and then produced pieces under the influence of David Smith. Until 1974, Caro used to paint his steel works and eventually produced Minimalist pieces with more volumes. He then no longer painted his works preferring instead to obtain better effects with their patinas or rusty appearances. During the 1980s, he worked under the influence of Catalan artists such as Gaudi, Gonzales, Picasso or Miro and carved sensual abstract forms. Caro has been considered as the leader of the new sculpture school in England.
