Editorial Reviews

Archie Rand
Jewish Art: A Modern History is a beautiful book and an impressive achievement. Addressing what it means to make, or to witness, Jewish art, Baskind and Silver have compiled this most complete overview of those factors, which bind a historical trajectory to contemporary developments. It is both an accessible academic resource and a rich introduction for the interested reader, offering a history of both the social and personal conditions which have continued to generate art objects that reflect on Jewishness. The generous arc of balance, in its erudition and analysis, is bracing, making Jewish Art an important contribution to studies in art history.”––Archie Rand
Sander L. Gilman
Jewish Art accomplishes the impossible. A readable survey (for the general reader); a concise overview (perfect for class use), a theoretical critique (for the art historian as well as the Jewish Studies specialist). This volume makes the question of Jewish Art and the Jewish Artist central to its history, beginning with the questions of ‘who’ and ‘what’ and ending with the conflicts and confluences between Israeli and Diaspora Jewish culture. A must buy.” — Sander L. Gilman, Emory University
