  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Esther Scroll, c. 1641
    with the means as well as the inclination to commission and collect the works of a young printmaker This scroll was printed from one engraving plate consisting of four arches which was repeated five times to produce a large arcade as a frame for the text above each arch is crowned by a broken pediment surmounted by lions Below are Dutch cityscapes that reflect the influence of Italia s new home Figures from the Purim story stand flanking the arches King Ahasuerus facing Queen Esther and Mordecai facing Haman Below each figure is a scene from the story each printed from a separate plate forming a narrative cycle of nineteen images The only exception to this composition is the first panel which consists of naturalistically rendered peacocks and other birds and an empty cartouche intended to frame the blessings recited before reading the scroll On the lip of the vase of flowers on the right Salom Italia signed his name in Hebrew The squirrel to the right is an element from the insignia used in Mantua by his family Salom Italia s great innovation and contribution to the design of Esther scrolls was setting the text within portals derived from triumphal arches The practice of conducting triumphal processions through arches dates back to ancient Rome and the building of temporary arches to honor rulers as they entered a city continued in Europe until the nineteenth century By the sixteenth century the triumphal entries of monarchs were commemorated by the publication of their iconographic programs complete with woodcuts or engravings of the temporary arches and decorations specially created for these events In 1642 shortly after Italia s arrival in Amsterdam the city mounted a magnificent triumphal entry for the stadtholder Frederik Hendrik and his in laws the English royal family Italia may also have been influenced by designs for the 1638 entry of Marie de Medici into Amsterdam published in 1639 for example an arch surmounted by lions with columns similar to the ones on this scroll Italia s figures flanking the arches stand beneath festoons of fruit suspended from masks which appeared in the decorations for a triumphal entry into Lisbon in 1619 published in Madrid 1622 By using imagery from a variety of printed sources Salom Italia achieved a perfect marriage of form and content since the Book of Esther recounts the triumph of the Jews of Persia and includes an account of Mordecai s triumphal procession through the streets of Shushan the capital This episode was depicted by Rembrandt in an etching that was made in Amsterdam around 1641 and was probably known to Italia The original owners of this scroll would have understood the reference to triumphal entries in the decorative program As they unrolled the scroll to follow the text revealing one arch at a time they would have been symbolically passing through each portal thereby reenacting the triumph of Mordecai and of all Jews that is at the heart of the celebration of Purim Source

  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - New Year Greeting, 1910
    Jewish traders began making regular visits to the territory In 1885 the first permanent Jewish settlers arrived in Juneau The Klondike gold rush of 1897 soon followed by another discovery of gold near Nome brought thirty thousand miners fortune hunters and businessmen into Cape Nome A number of Jews joined the immigration and Inuits also sought a share of the bonanza Several hundred of the latter rapidly established a market for native clothing along with carved ivory figurines cribbage boards and other souvenirs This unusual Alaskan artifact combines the Jewish custom of sending Rosh Hashanah cards with the centuries old Inuit craft of walrus tusk carving a tradition that developed quite separately from the whaleman s scrimshaw However with the arrival of the whalers in the nineteenth century both Inuit carvers and scrimshanders expanded their repertoires as they exchanged techniques and materials The complexity and diversity of Inuit subjects increased as more sophisticated interpretations displaced schematic figures and linear ornamentation Inuit carvers quickly learned to copy illustrations or photographs in what is termed a western pictorial style The most innovative and influential of the carvers was the Alaskan Inuit Angokwazhuk known as Happy Jack He is credited with the introduction after 1892 of the art of engraving walrus tusks with a very fine needle which resulted in an almost perfect imitation of newspaper halftones and fabric textures The carvers enhanced the incised lines by filling them with india ink graphite or ashes Most of the engraved walrus tusks are unsigned but several closely resemble this carving A cribbage board for example assumed to have been made by Happy Jack is embellished with portraits of a couple separated by a nosegay Even though he could not read or write Happy Jack reproduced written inscriptions one work included the full content of a Packer s Tar Soap label with its portrait pinecones and slogan While some other native carvers also had the ability to copy the inscriptions and photographs provided by their customers they lacked his consummate skill On this tusk the artist has ably recorded the faces and attire of a religiously observant Jewish couple believed to have run a store in Nome The woman seems to be wearing a wig and is dressed in typical turn of the century style The man s beard is neatly trimmed his top hat suggests a holiday or formal occasion The Hebrew inscription delivers the traditional Jewish New Year salutation May you be inscribed for a good year 5671 1910 In English is added Nome Alaska Source Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 212 213 Bibliography Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 212 13 Kleeblatt Norman L Dr Vivian B Mann TREASURES OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 1986 pp 132 133 Kleeblatt Norman L THE JEWISH HERITAGE IN AMERICAN FOLK ART New York The Jewish Museum 1984 p 94 Mann
