Looking Jewish: The State of Research on Modern Jewish Art
Jewish Quarterly Review
An essay is presented on the scholarship of Jewish art from the 19th and 20th centuries. It discusses books on Jewish artists and what the authors describe as Jewish image-phobia including "The Artless Jew: Medieval and Modern Affirmations and Denials of the Visual," by Kalman P. Bland, and "The Nation without Art," by Margaret Olin. The essay also examines scholarship on Jewish-American art and Jewish art and the Holocaust.
