  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Beaker of the Polin Burial Society, 1691 (date of inscription)
    the Bohemian capital became a center of Renaissance art and scholarship attracting artists and scholars from all over Europe Among them were specialists in the arts of cutting and painting glass The popularity of decorated glass among members of the court influenced other groups guilds societies and noble families to commission similar pieces In another development during the second half of the sixteenth century the rabbis of Prague worked at organizing the community in their care In 1564 Rabbi Eliezer Ashkenazi formed the first modern burial society its regulations were codified by the great Rabbi Judah Loew known as the Maharal c 1525 1609 In effect the Jewish burial societies of Europe performed some of the same functions for members as did the Christian guilds caring for the ill the deceased and the deceased s family leading the Jewish organizations to adopt some of the guilds trappings and rituals One of these was the custom of holding festive banquets at which the business of the society was enacted new members were elected and special emblems of the organization were displayed Some examples are the large drinking vessels decorated with vignettes of members performing characteristic activities A drink of wine from this cup was the ceremony by which new members were admitted to the society It is in this artistic social and religious context that the Polin beaker must be placed Its decoration features a frieze of burial society members who are marching with a bier toward the cemetery The accompanying inscription reads This glass belongs to the Holy Society of Morticians of the holy community of Polin A present from Moses son of Rabbi Jacob Polin Hanukkah 5 452 December 1691 The same elements a frieze of figures and an elaborate inscription appear on similar glasses through the nineteenth century and were imitated on the faience beakers favored by burial societies in nearby Moravia Both types represent regional forms that differ markedly from silver beakers commissioned by Jewish burial societies in other parts of Europe Source Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 p 172 73 Bibliography Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 172 73 Frankel Ellen THE JEWISH SPIRIT A CELEBRATION IN STORIES ART 1st ed Stewart Tabori and Chang 1997 Kleeblatt Norman L Dr Vivian B Mann TREASURES OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 1986 pp 62 63 Ungerleider Mayerson Joy JEWISH FOLK ART FROM BIBLICAL DAYS TO MODERN TIMES New York Summit Books 1986 p 263 This information may change as the result of ongoing research Other Works in Highlights article data cycle auto height calc data cycle timeout 0 data cycle easing linear data cycle speed 1000 data cycle carousel offset 120 data cycle throttle speed true data cycle manual trump false data cycle swipe true data cycle prev cycle prev data cycle next cycle next John Wesley Jarvis American b England 1780 1840 Portrait

  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Max Is Rushing in the Bagels to a Restaurant on Second Avenue for the Morning Trade, c. 1940
    a murder at the cinema a raucous night at Sammy s bar on the Bowery and a Coney Island beach teeming with Sunbathers He depicts this New York as in the words of art historian Max Kozloff a strip show gone bananas often adding captions describing his adventures The title for this photograph derives from a longer caption in which Weegee indicates that his encounter with the bagelman occurred at six in the morning near the Consolidated Edison Company building on Fourteenth Street Calling his protagonist by his first name Weegee alludes to camaraderie with the workers with whom he regularly shares the deserted streets in the dead of night and the wee hours of the morning He captures Max midstep as he looks and moves self assuredly toward the fleeting glare of the photographer s flash Weegee called his flash his Aladdin s lamp which allowed him to achieve what he referred to as Rembrandt light to describe the way that his glowing figures emerged from the darkness Although the street is shrouded in blackness and the cement squares on the ground are obscured by enigmatic shadows and grime Weegee creates a sense of place by hinting at the silhouette of a lamppost in the background Today you can still find originals as well as replicas of street lamps of this style known as bishop s crooks lining the area around Union Square where this photograph was taken as well as in many other neighborhoods The police radio installed in his car gave Weegee his almost supernatural Ouija like ability to arrive at crime scenes before the police likely earning him his nickname although the name might also have derived from his early work as a photo assistant using a squeegee to dry prints He was almost entirely self taught After several freelance assignments as a crime photographer he became a staff photographer at PM a left leaning newspaper in 1940 He became part of the first generation of what has become known as the New York School of photographers and was loosely affiliated with the Photo League exhibiting Weegee Murder Is My Business there in 1941 He often photographed in tandem with Lisette Model who shared many of his subjects but often portrayed them in a more serious light His candid depiction of his subjects and use of experimental techniques remained an integral part of his own work even later in life when he moved to Hollywood and began creating distorted images of celebrities and consulting on special effects for films including Stanley Kubrick s Dr Strangelove His legacy can be seen most vividly in his influence on the work of other photographers associated with the New York School such as Diane Arbus whose pictures often focus on individuals on the periphery of society Source Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 184 185 Bibliography Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum
