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.

Ury, Lesser
Birth - Death : 1861-1931
Nationality : German
Ury was much influenced by Millet, Van Gogh and Jozef Israels. Inspired by the life of the German metropolis of Berlin he became a prominent artist in Germany. He also painted Jewish-related themes. Unlike Liebermann, Ury was born into a poor and disunited family and as a result he felt the oppressive weight of poverty throughout his youth. Even when success came, somewhat late in his life, Ury remained a misanthrope and finally died wearing rags, locked up in his studio as a recluse though a considerable fortune in bonds was founds buried beneath the floor. Born in Birnbaum in German Poland, he ran away from his home and set out to become a painter, studying in Dusseldorf, Brussels and Paris. Ury first painted genre pieces in an academic style and then produced landscapes in Volluvet, Belgium, assimilating the influence of the French Impressionists and completing his paintings in his studio after sketches made in the open air. Ury returned to Berlin in 1885 and produced city scenes in the German capital until his death. He notably achieved great technical brilliance with the use of pastels and expressed in his large visionary compositions on biblical and Jewish themes his mystical attachment to the sacred texts and to the chosen people.
