Her analysis of Soyer's work places the artist in a necessary cultural context and provides a valuable new approach to the study of modern Jewish art."--Jacket
The Jewish graphic novel : critical approaches by Samantha Baskind( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 349 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 )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 289 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
Peter Blume : nature and metamorphosis by Peter Blume( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Russian American artist Peter Blume was one of the earliest practitioners of surrealist painting in the United States, and his elaborately detailed and dreamlike compositions helped define American Modernist art. Blume worked out the themes of his ambitious large-scale paintings through dozens of drafts in different media, slowly developing layers of allegory and imagery that dramatized the creative process, cultural memory, urban expansion, destruction, rebirth, and political power. Showcasing over a hundred paintings and drawings, as well as sketches, sculpture, and ephemera from all periods of his six-decade career, Peter Blume: Nature and Metamorphosis provides unprecedented insight into the artist's process, his relationship to Surrealism, and his profound visions of twentieth-century social and spiritual upheaval. This comprehensive volume draws on a selection of previously unpublished interviews with Blume and selected examples of the artist's writings, and reflects previously unknown aspects of Blume's work, including a poster design made during World War II, a major painting not seen in public since 1961, and extensive photographs and drawings from his archives. Essays by Samantha Baskind, Sergio Cortesini, Robert Cowley, David McCarthy, Sarah Vure, and Robert Cozzolino delve into topics such as Blume's relationship with an international community of artists and writers and their work, his engagement with politics in the 1930s and 1940s, his vital role in the evolution of Surrealism in America, the relationship between automatic drawing and precise painting in his own practice, and the influence of his Jewish heritage on his work. The first retrospective of this influential artist in several decades, Peter Blume: Nature and Metamorphosis brings the artist's significance within the history of American art into sharp focus"--amazon.com
