In this first book-length study of Jewish art in America, Matthew Baigell explores works from the early settlers of America to the present. It is a narrative history of the Jewish experience in American art as seen through the works of many different artists. Its main focus is the examination of Jewish subject matter employed by artists, their responses to their religious and ethnic heritage as well as to significant events of the time.
