This course will explore the tremendous contribution that Jewish immigrant artists played in creating “modern art” in early 20th century Paris, and later in New York City. Perhaps equally as important was the influence of Jewish art dealers, who supported and promoted the art of Jewish and non-Jewish avant-garde artists. The role of Jewish connoisseurs, art collectors, and critics is integral to a full appreciation of the Jewish contribution to modern art.

The last session will be an in-person or “virtual” tour at the CMA featuring artworks by some of the groundbreaking artists that were represented by the early entrepreneurial Jewish art dealers and what the critics had to say about their work.
