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."
Ulman, Benjamin Birth - Death : 1829-1884 Nationality : French
Ulman painted a few biblical scenes during his career.
Ulman, Micha Birth - Death : 1939- Nationality : Israeli
Ulman has been producing sculptures in Israel as well as a monumental installation titled “Library” on the Bebelplatz in Berlin, where the Nazis burned 20,000 works on May 10th 1933. This artist has had a close relationship with books made of iron and sand.

Sculptor, creator of assemblages, painter, printmaker and graphic artist. Ultvedt studied painting in Stockholm from 1945 and taught at the Academy in that city from 1968.

One of Ultvedt's works is on permanent display at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

A prominent figure on the Israeli art scene, she was greatly influenced by the scribbles used in Aryeh Aroch's paintings.
Urselincx, Jan Birth - Death : 1598? -1664 Nationality : Dutch
Urselincx painted a few biblical scenes during his career.
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.
