  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Torah Ark Curtain, 1950-51
    practice In a bold step Percival Goodman architect for the Millburn synagogue charged three emerging avant garde artists with commissions to decorate that building Adolph Gottlieb Robert Motherwell and Herbert Ferber each of whom has since become a major figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement supplied a Torah curtain a lobby mural and an exterior sculptural relief respectively Gottlieb s design for the curtain actually executed by the women of the congregation under the supervision of his wife Esther is a late example in the development of his influential pictograph paintings of 1941 53 It directly reflects these compartmentalized canvases which in turn were influenced by the grid based works of Mondrian and by the sectional arrangement of religious narrative cycles of the early Italian Renaissance The forms contained within Gottlieb s compartments and the meanings of these forms are related to unconscious expressions associated with African Oceanic and Native American art as well as with Carl Jung s writings about symbols and the collective unconscious Gottlieb s pictograph style was therefore easily adaptable to the creation of a ritual object using symbols of Jewish collective consciousness In this curtain he abstracts such basic elements of religious belief as the Tablets of the Law the twelve tribes the Temple and the Ark of the Covenant He also includes stylizations of objects developed for synagogue use Torah mantles and Torah shields and emblems that have become synonymous with Judaism the Lion of Judah and the Star of David Gottlieb s pictographs have been noted for the frequent appearance of sexual references and his predilection for visual puns In this Torah curtain he intended the W form pictograph at the lower right corner to represent a breastplate a common term for Torah shield It seems to depict the chain by which that ornament is hung over the Torah staves There can be little doubt that these two pendulous shapes generally associated in Gottlieb s work with female breasts are an international pun on breastplate However the serpentine outline can also be perceived as the artist s usual visualization of the male symbol This combination of the male and female in one image is a common Jungian reference to the life force and in this case embodies Gottlieb s ideas of the universality and continuity of human existence It also relates to Jung s standard interpretation of the anima and animus as well as the dual readings of positive and negative spaces Ultimately this avant garde adaptation of traditional symbols becomes an expression of the viable continuum of Jewish ceremony and community a significant concept after the devastations of World War II and the Holocaust Source Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 150 151 From the earliest synagogues Torah scrolls have generally been given a place of honor in the synagogue by being housed in a special ark often covered with a curtain made of fine material In this modern example artist Adolph
