Jewish Artists of the School of Paris 1905 - 1939

Серия: "-"

From 1905 to 1939, Paris attracted artists from all over the globe as the capital of the art world. This period of artistic proliferation became known as the School of Paris, and includes a great diversity of artistic expression. Within the teeming art world centred on Montparnasse, one group set itself apart: Jewish artists from Russia, Poland, and Central Europe. Although their styles were diverse, they shared the common fate of fleeing anti-Semitic persecutions in their home countries. Some became famous in the 1920s, such as Soutine, Lipchitz, and Chagall, while others did not have the time or the luck to gain renown. Nearly half of these artists died in Nazi concentration camps. This book pays tribute to their rich creative talents. It brings together 178 painters and sculptors of the School of Paris in the form of an illustrated dictionary, presenting their life and work through testimonials and documents, some published here for the first time.
