Presented by John Paul Thornton: When Jewish artists of the twentieth century picked up their paintbrushes and sculpting tools, they were creating new languages of visual expression. In this exciting online visual presentation, we follow immigrant Jews living in Paris and America who boldly contributed to the avant-garde. Featured artists include Jacob Epstein, Chana Orlov, Arthur Markowicz, Max Weber, Albert Bloch and Arthur Szyk.
