Presented by Roshna Kapadia, Wandering Docent
In this presentation, we cover visual artists of the Jewish faith who settled in various parts of Europe: Abraham Salomon in England, Max Lieberman from Germany, Modigliani from Italy, and several artists — from Pissarro to Chagall — in France. Depending on the era and environment they were working in, not all of these artists chose to include Jewish themes into their work. In paintings by Solomon and Pissarro, for example, we see no hint of their Jewish heritage. By contrast, Chagall and others emphatically wove Jewish themes and motifs into their work, in direct response to the treatment of Jews leading up to and during World War II.
