Belonging and Betrayal: How Jews Made the Art World Modern

Hosted By: Yiddish Book Center (Amherst, MA)

Description: In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a host of Jewish outsiders came to play a critical role in modern art as dealers, collectors, critics, and, not least, as artists. This talk looks at the role of Jews in modern art by focusing on the stories of a few remarkable individuals and how and why they gravitated to different schools of modern art, how they championed the work of avant-garde artists, how their efforts were regarded and received, and what happened to them and their collections after the Nazi rise to power and the outbreak of the Second World War.
