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.

Birth - Death : 1892-1954
Nationality : Russian
Born in the small shtetl of Beshenkovichi of the Vitebsk Gubernia, Yudovin showed an interest in drawing at a very young age and was noticed by Yehuda Penn, one of the famous Jewish artists of the time, who took him under his wing. In 1910 Yudovin went to Saint Petersburg to study painting but soon had to find a work to earn a living. He had his first exhibition in Petrograd in 1917 and then produced an album of Jewish ornaments, a theme that remained important in his work throughout his career. Yudovin continued his education with two established artists, M. Bernshtein and M. Druzhinsky. After 1920 he worked solely as a printmaker and illustrator and frequented Chagall's school in Vitebsk until 1923. He had his first solo exhibition in 1926 in Vitebsk and also acted as caretaker for the An-sky collection of ritual objects deposited at the Jewish National Museum in Petrograd until this institution was closed down in 1928. During World War Two, Yudovin stayed in Leningrad, which was besieged by German troops and depicted those harsh days in a set of engravings called “Leningrad in the days of the Great patriotic War”.
