Unlike earlier generations, Jewish American artists born between
the 1930s and the early 1960s were among the first to overtly
embrace and challenge religious themes in their work. These Jewish
artists felt comfortable as assimilated Americans yet developed an
overwhelming desire to explore their cultural and religious
heritage. They became the first generation willing to take risks
with their material and to discover new ways to create art with
Jewish religious content. In his most recent book, Baigell explores
the art and influences of eleven artists who enlarged the
parameters of Jewish American art through their varied approaches
to subject matter, to feminist concerns, and to finding
contemporary relevance in the ancient texts. Along with detailed
essays on each artist, the book includes nearly one hundred
stunning illustrations that testify to the beauty, depth, and
importance of the paintings and sculptures produced by this
groundbreaking generation of artists.
