Jewish Art Masterpieces: From the Israel Museum

Jewish Art Masterpieces: From the Israel Museum Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring the world's most comprehensive collection of Jewish art, Jewish Art Masterpieces is a magnificent art book as well as a fascinating survey of Jewish history. Color plates reveal the artistry and craftsmanship of precious objects such as an 8th-century B.C.E. ivory pomegranate from Solomon's temple, an engraved marriage contract from the 15th century, and paintings by modern artists including Marc Chagall and Menashe Kadishman. Illuminated manuscripts, such as the classic Bird's Head Haggadah from 14th-century Germany, are also featured, along with synagogue interiors, Torah decorations, and Sabbath and festival objects. An informative text explores each item's historical, religious, and artistic significance and reminds the reader of the enduring legacy of the Jewish heritage.
