The extraordinary works of art reproduced here communicate the aesthetic values and skill of their creators while revealing different aspects of Jewish culture. Paintings, prints, sculptures and ceremonial objects all speak as evocatively about the Jewish experience in the world as they do about the unique power of art to both inspire and inform. Spanning approximately two hundred years, these works represent the enormous range of art in the unparalleled collection of the Jewish Museum in New York City.
