    In the first extended work tracing the Jewish influences of fifteen major American artists, this book is a landmark chronicling the enormous contribution of Jewish artists to 20th-century American art. Born over a fifty-year period, the artists in this volume represent several generations. Examining the work of such influential artists as Mark Rothko, Max Weber, & Ruth Weisberg, it directly confronts their Jewish identity--as a religious, cultural, & psychological component of their lives--and explores the way in which this influence is reflected in their art.

    Art and Judaism explores the Jewish experience with art during the Greco-Roman period - from the Hellenistic period through the rise of Islam. It starts with the premise that Jewish art in antiquity was a 'minority' or 'ethnic' art and surveys ways that Jews fully participated in, transformed, and at times rejected the art of their general environment. It focuses upon the politics of identity during the Greco-Roman period, even as it discusses ways that modern identity issues have sometimes distorted and at other times refined scholarly discussion of ancient Jewish material culture.
