Temple Shalom’s Adult Ed Committee invites you to a talk by Deborah Varat
When we think of the great artists of the Modern era, names like Manet, Van Gogh, Cezanne, and Picasso come to mind. None of these artists were Jewish, but the supporters who made their careers possible and built their reputations were – the dealers, gallery owners, publishers, and collectors.
This was especially true in Germany in the period following World War I, when Jews enjoyed unprecedented access to the intellectual and cultural realms from which they had long been excluded. This presentation will look at a few such Jewish impresarios in Germany at this time and the central role they played in supporting Modern art during this most celebrated of cultural moments.
Deborah Varat, in addition to being a member of Temple Shalom, is a Professor of Art History and Humanities at Southern New Hampshire University. German inter-war culture, and Jews in the art world more generally, are two of her areas of expertise.
