"Crafting a Jewish Style: The Art of the Bezalel Academy, 1906-1996"
2000-08-26 until 2000-10-22
Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts
Montgomery, AL, USA

Crafting a Jewish Style is the first exhibition of its type to bring together work from the early Bezalel School, Jerusalem, in operation from 1906 to 1929, with work from its successor, the New Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, from 1935 to the present. The Bezalel School was founded to instruct the first generation of Jewish artists in Eretz-Israel. It remains the preeminent training ground for contemporary Israeli artists. This exhibition will represent the major workshops of the Bezalel School and will include textiles, ceramics, manuscript illumination, and wood and metalwork.

Ranging from Jewish ceremonial art to secular works, the objects demonstrate the talent and skill of one of the finest design academies in the world where artists address the question of how to define Jewish art.

Also included with this installation will be nine prints by the French printmaker, Nissan Engel, a graduate of the Bezalel School. The etchings, a series titled Beethoven's Nine Symphonies, is in the collection of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.
