19th-Century Jews in Art

A collection entitled Unpainted Jew featuring wood engravings from 19th-century Warsaw magazines is on display at the Ziemi Lubuskiej Museum in Zielona Góra, western Poland.

The exhibition focuses on the way Polish Jews were depicted in art, their life and objects associated with Jewish history, culture and civilization. Jews accounted for a quarter of the population of the Polish Kingdom in the 19th century.

Most of the works on show were commissioned for the Kłosy and Tygodnik Ilustrowany magazines to accompany articles, as stand-alone illustrations or satirical cartoons.

The use of wood engravings was in those days one of the most modern printing methods and one that changed magazine publishing.

The works come from a private collection. The exhibition has been organized by the BEIT Jewish Cultural Association in Warsaw.

Ziemi Lubuskiej Museum in Zielona Góra, 15 Niepodległo¶ci Ave., until June 22.
