  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Hanukkah Lamp, 1735-36
    Picture Request Around the 1730s a type of lamp appeared in Augsburg and Berlin that would eventually develop into a favorite Berlin type These lamps are quite small with a rocaille framed backplate a very deep oil box and a leaf projecting from each side of the box While the majority have a bouquet or basket of flowers in the center the image in the center of this example is a pitcher and basin symbolizing the Levites or servitors who tended the Jerusalem Temple in antiquity In all likelihood the owner of the lamp was descended from Levites a distinction that still carries certain rights and obligations Augsburg was one of the major silversmithing centers in Germany By the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it was producing silver on a large enough scale that it was exported by commercial houses to cities all over Europe and sold at the major fairs in Frankfurt and Leipzig It seems likely that this lamp type originated in Augsburg and then came to the attention of Berlin masters or their clients possibly through display at the fairs The maker of this lamp Johann Christoph Drentwett I was a member of one of the two major silversmith families of eighteenth century Augsburg that provided plate to the kings and princes of Europe Helmut Seling in his definitive work on Augsburg silver lists seventeen works by this master and illustrates eight Drentwett created at least one other work of Jewish ceremonial art a Torah shield in the Israel Museum collection Jewish ceremonial silver was generally not made by the most renowned silversmiths so the fact that this lovely lamp was made by such a highly regarded master is noteworthy Source Braunstein Susan LUMINOUS ART HANUKKAH MENORAHS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 p 69 Bibliography Braunstein Susan FIVE CENTURIES OF HANUKKAH LAMPS FROM THE JEWISH MUSEUM A CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 p 69 Braunstein Susan LUMINOUS ART HANUKKAH MENORAHS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 p 69 Jüdisches Museum Frankfurt am Main DAS MUSEUM JÜDISCHER ALTERTÜMER IN FRANKFURT WAS ÜBRIG BLIEB Frankfurt Jüdisches Museum Frankfurt 1988 no 12 Schoenberger Guido Ein Gang durch die Sammlung Nauheim In SIEGMUND NAUHEIM UND SEINE SAMMLUNG edited by Hermann Gundersheimer 6 20 Frankfurt Museum jüdischer Altertümer in Frankfurt am Main 1937 p 10 Provenance Siegfried Nauheim Collection Frankfurt until 1936 Museum Jüdischer Altertümer Frankfurt bequest by Nauheim Jewish Cultural Reconstruction transferred to TJM in 1952 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 Ludwig Yehuda Wolpert American b Germany 1900 1981 Passover Set Learn More Louis Faurer American 1916 2001

  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Book Cover, 1715
    rabbis began to discuss its legal implications and to regulate it in the Talmudic period The custom took many forms varying form place to place In some Ashkenazi communities silver belts were exchanged and were then worn at the wedding Clothing even shoes were also mentioned in accounts of sivlonot In Italy a common gift was a prayer book in a special cover the very ornate ones exchanged by the wealthy were of silver This book cover then exemplifies an Italian Jewish marriage custom It also illustrates another widespread prectice among wealthy Jews their adoption of unofficial coats of arms as family emblems In the central cartouche on the front of this cover is a gate on which rests a couchant lion the emblem of the Portaleone family a distiguished family whose name is derived form a quarter near the ghetto in Rome The back cover is decorated with the crest of the Grassini family two rampant lions flanking a tower indicating that the cover was made to celebrate a marriage between the two families This use of coats of arms by Italian Jews was unofficial and did not conform to any heraldic standards As a result the crest of a single family often changed over time or varied from branch to branch Italian Jews placed their coats of arms not only on personal possessions like this cover but also on their tombstones their donations to syynagogues and in the case of publishers on the title pages of printed books Above each of coat of arms is a single crown which may refer to the crown of Torah learning or to the crown of a good name as an illustration of a popular maxim from the Ethics of the Fathers 4 17 Rabbi Simeon said There are three crowns the crown of Torah the crown of priesthood and the crown of royalty but the crown of a good name excels them all The remainder of the decoration consists of repousse leaf and scroll forms and is similar to the decoration on silver covers made for Christian missals in the 18th century The prayer book inside this example is a mahzor a holiday prayer book printed according to the Roman rite in Mantua 1712 15 Source Kleeblatt Norman L and Vivian B Mann TREASURES OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 1986 pp 90 91 Bibliography Kleeblatt Norman L and Vivian B Mann TREASURES OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 1986 pp 90 91 Mann Vivian B ed GARDENS AND GHETTOS THE ART OF JEWISH LIFE IN ITALY Exh cat Berkeley University of California Press 1989 no 237 p 310 The Jewish Museum New York CULTURE AND CONTINUITY THE JEWISH JOURNEY November 22 1999 July 18 2002 The Jewish Museum New York CULTURE AND CONTINUITY THE JEWISH JOURNEY March 18 2005 present This information may change as the result of ongoing research Other Works in Highlights article data cycle auto height calc data cycle timeout 0

  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Sukkah Decoration, c. 1775
    holiday of Sukkot Tabernacles was one of the great festivals of the Temple in Jerusalem Its name derives from the sukkah booth that individual families build as a reminder of the temporary dwellings inhabited by their ancestors during the forty years journey in the wilderness During the holiday the sukkah is the locus of meals of study and even a place to sleep Its decoration varies according to the customs of the country in which the owner resides Italian Jews of the 18th century favored elaborate paper decorations incorporating texts and images appropriate to the festival Since the reading of Ecclesiastes in the synagogue is a special tradition of this holiday this text became a favorite source of motifs and several extant Italian decorative cycles for the sukkah are based on it Luzzato s elaborate micrography was part of a similar set the remainder of which is now in the Smithsonian Institution Each of these six additional panels bears one or two passages from Psalm 76 whose third line begins In Salem also is set His tabernacle sukko making it an appropriate text to be used for a cycle of sukkah decorations The lettering floral decoration and palette of the Smithsonian plaques indicate that they are the work of the same artist as the larger Ecclesiastes piece in The Jewish Museum though the latter is the only one signed by the artist Israel David Luzzatto Luzatto s micrography draws on an artistic tradition that is first known in the works of a family of scribes active in Tiberius in the late 9th century Instead of merely listing notes to the Scriptures they were copying these scribes arranged their minute writing into designs whose small size and patterns contrasted with the larger letters and regular lines of the main text Their achievement was something new unrelated to the Carolingian practice based on antique precedent of filling drawn outlines with lines of text In micrography the line of text is the line of drawing and when the image relates to the content of the text and both relate to the purpose for which the image was made as here then the result is a work of harmonious unity Source Kleeblatt Norman L and Dr Vivian B Mann TREASURES OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 1986 pp 86 87 Bibliography Kleeblatt Norman L and Dr Vivian B Mann TREASURES OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 1986 pp 86 87 Makover S J THE JEWISH PATRONS OF VENICE Exh brochure New York The Jewish Museum 1985 no 36 The Jewish Museum THE JEWISH MUSEUM AT 75 Commemorative album New York The Jewish Museum New York 1980 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

  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Goldfish Vendor, 1928
    who knew contemporary European artistic developments firsthand sought to incorporate everyday visions of the Near East into a modernist vocabulary Thus influenced by the newly adopted use of the modern Hebrew language they defined their goals for a Hebrew rather than a Jewish art Reuven Rubin was one of the most important of these young pioneers and his new land was a constant source of inspiration for him The lyricism of his Goldfish Vendor also known as Arab Fisherman is typical of Rubin s colorful and self consciously naive vision of the Land of Israel The painting also exemplifies a theme recurrent in Israeli art of that decade the portrayal of the Arab The appeal of the physical vitality of these people becomes almost stereotypical in the literature and art of the 1920s According to Nahum Gutman Rubin s colleague the Arab who maintained a continuing tie with the land constitutes the antithesis of the Diaspora Jew His sense of belonging and his instinctual assets are exaggerated even monumentalized Rubin s paintings of that period have been stylistically linked to the earlier French naïfs such as Henri Rousseau and André Bauchant Also evident is the debt owed to the Jewish members of the School of Paris particularly Modigliani whose monumental figures seem to press the edges of the canvas and could easily have served to trigger Rubin s powerful figure Yet Rubin s subject matter and purposefully innocent style must also be viewed in light of other Israeli paintings of the decade their pervasive aesthetic combined the tenets of modernism with a confident depiction of the land creating a style appropriate for the infancy of Israel s national rebirth Source Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 50 51 Bibliography Barbican Art Gallery CHAGALL TO KITAJ JEWISH EXPERIENCE IN 20TH CENTURY ART Exh cat London Avram Kampf 1990 no 289 p 193 Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 50 51 Jewish Museum JEWISH EXPERIENCE IN THE ART OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY Exh cat New York The Jewish Museum 1975 no 199 p 30 Kleeblatt Norman L Dr Vivian B Mann TREASURES OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 1986 pp 182 183 Shack William Rubin THE MENORAH JOURNAL XV no 6 December 1928 pp 546 548 Stavans Ilan ed THE OXFORD BOOK OF JEWISH STORIES USA Oxford University Press 1998 Provenance the artist sold to Helena Rubinstein New York NY by December 1928 sold to Jacob Weintraub New York NY by May 1966 traded to Joseph Stieglitz Tel Aviv Israel sold to Harold Ruttenberg New York NY November 1968 until 1985 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
