Raphael Soyer and the search for modern Jewish art by Samantha Baskind( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samantha Baskind examines the painter's art and life in the rich context of religious, cultural, political, and social conditions in the twentieth-century United States. By promoting an understanding of Soyer not only as a painter of social conditions but also as a Jewish American artists, she addresses larger questions regarding the definition and study of modern Jewish art. Whereas previous scholars have defined Jewish art simply as art produced by people who were born Jewish, Baskind stresses the importance of an artist's cultural identity when defining ethnic art. Baskind explains how Soyer negotiated his Jewish identity in changing ways over the course of his life. At the same time, she offers new strategies for identifying and interpreting Jewish art in general
The Jewish graphic novel : critical approaches( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1970s and 1980s, Jewish cartoonists such as Will Eisner were some of the first artists to use the graphic novel as a way to explore their ethnicity. Although similar to the comic book in format, graphic novels presented weightier subject matter at greater length in more expensive packaging, which appealed to an adult audience, representing the rise of a postmodern, global Jewish culture in the late twentieth century." "The Jewish Graphic Novel is a lively, interdisciplinary collection of essays that addresses critically acclaimed works in this subgenre of Jewish literary and artistic culture. Featuring insightful discussions of notable figures in the industry - such as Will Eisner, Art Spiegelman, and Joann Sfar - the essays focus on how graphic novels are enlarging the aesthetic possibilities of Holocaust memoir and fiction, and to portray Jewish identity in America and abroad."--Jacket

Encyclopedia of Jewish American artists by Samantha Baskind( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Encyclopedia of Jewish American Artists presents over 80 nineteenth- and twentieth-century Jewish American artists, ranging from the critically neglected Theresa Bernstein, Ruth Gikow, and Jennings Tofel, to the well-known Eva Hesse, Roy Lichtenstein, and Larry Rivers. The subject matter of some of these artists may surprise readers. Adolph Gottlieb designed and supervised the fabrication of a thirty-five foot wide, four-story high stained glass façade for a synagogue; Louise Nevelson sculpted a Holocaust memorial; and Philip Pearlstein painted a version of Moses with the Tablets of the Law early in his career. Covering painters, sculptors, printmakers, and photographers, as well as artists who engage in newer forms of visual expression such as video, conceptual, and performance art, the book is in part intended to stimulate further scholarship on these artists. When appropriate, entries reveal the influence of the Jewish American encounter on the artists' work along with other factors such as gender and the immigrant experience. In many cases, the artists' own words are employed to flesh out perspectives on their art as well as on their Jewish identity. To that end, the volume contains excerpts from recent interviews conducted by the author with some of the artists, including Judy Chicago, Audrey Flack, Jack Levine, and Sol LeWitt. Illustrations accompanying each artist's entry, some in color, aid this invaluable look at Jewish American art
