"Moritz Daniel Oppenheim: Scenes From Frankfurt's Jewish Past"
2000-07-30 until 2000-10-19
Jewish Museum
New York, NY, USA United States of America

This exhibition includes fourteen oil paintings by the nineteenth century German Jewish artist Moritz Daniel Oppenheim (1800-1882), known as both the painter of the Rothschilds and the Rothschild of painters. the fourteen works are grisailles (monochromes in shades of gray) from the artist's popular series of genre paintings, Pictures of Traditional Jewish Family Life, that portray in great detail, scenes of the Sabbath, Jewish holidays, and rites of passage such as weddings and bar mitzvahs.

Based on earlier color paintings, they were reworked as grisailles from 1865 through 1880 to facilitate reproduction by the photographic technology of the time. Several of the works in this group depart from the standard gray palette and contain touches of gold, red and blue. These paintings were recently donated to The Jewish Museum by The Oscar and Regina Gruss Charitable and Educational Foundation, Inc.
