FRAGMENTED MIRROR, EXHIBITION OF JEWISH ARTISTS, BERLIN 1907
FRAGMENTED MIRROR, EXHIBITION OF JEWISH ARTISTS, BERLIN, 1907
In 1907, an exhibition of Jewish artists opened in Berlin. Reflecting the Berlin Jewish community which sponsored it, it was replete with contradictions and paradoxes: Jewish, but not religious; nationalist, but not Zionist; assimilated and German, but also with works by East European Jews. Artists included Lesser Ury, Josef Israëls, Pissarro, Maurycy Gottlieb, Samuel Hirszenberg and many more. Twelve of the 200 works - paintings and sculptures - as well as works of over half of the artists presented at the Berlin exhibition are in the collection of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and constitute this exhibition’s focus, with loans from private and public collections.
