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.

Krasner, Lee
Birth - Death : 1908 or 1912- 1984
Nationality : American
Painter. Born to an immigrant Russian-Jewish couple, Lena, who changed her first name to Lenore and then Lee, trained at the Cooper Union, the Art Students League and the Academy of Design in New York. She also took college courses and in spite of the Great Depression never gave up hope of becoming a full-time artist. In 1934, she was accepted for employment by the Public Works of Art Project, the first of the New Deal art patronage programs. She studied in 1937 under Hans Hoffmann until 1940. Discarding old orthodoxies she revised her language before joining the American Abstract Artists. In 1941, she met Jackson Pollock and was much impressed by his work. In fact, their meeting proved decisive and led to their marriage in 1945. Although she acknowledged Pollock's superior gifts, she rather worked under the influence of Matisse and Mondrian. Lee Krasner produced some beautiful and captivating series of collage paintings in the mid-1950s and gained attention in the New York art world. In 1946, she changed her style and gave a prominent role to human, animal and plant forms in her paintings that often alluded to the natural world's cycle of birth and death. In the following years, her relationship with Pollock deteriorated as he was drinking heavily and had taken a mistress. After his death in a car accident, she was deeply grieved but found in painting a kind of antidote to her problems. At the end of 1962, she suffered a near-fatal brain aneurysm that hampered her work during almost two years. She however managed to pursue her career and achieved recognition as a main contributor to modern American art. A few months before her death she had her first full retrospective exhibition at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Bio written by Helen Harrison, Director, Pollock-Krasner House
