Jewish Artists and the Bible in Twentieth-Century America, by Samantha Baskind
A beautifully written and well-illustrated work.
Presents an illuminating analysis of the largely ignored biblically-themed work of five Jewish artists, well-known on the 20th-century American art scene for their oeuvre: Jack Levine, George Segal, Audrey Flack, Larry Rivers, and R.B. Kitaj.
"A treasure for art historians and students; biblical, Jewish studies, and feminist scholars; and others.” - Library Journal.
“A fascinating and beautifully written examination of the role of biblical art in twentieth-century America.” — Gary Shteyngart.
