Overview

For nearly eighty years, the Ben Uri Art Society has been at the heart of the artistic and cultural life of Anglo-Jewry. Founded in 1915 in the East End of London, it has built up an important collection of paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture by Jewish artists - one of the most extensive of its kind. A catalogue of the collection was first published in 1987 but has been out of print for some time. This new revised and expanded edition includes information on acquisitions since 1987, and updated biographies of artists covered in the first edition. With nearly two hundred illustrations, biographical details on every artist, and a full catalogue entry for each work in the collection, this is a key reference work, and a tribute to the achievement of Jewish artists this century in the field of visual art.
