In the first comprehensive study of Jewish identity and its meaning for the history of art, eleven influential scholars illuminate the formative role of Jews as subjects of art-historical discourse. At the same time, their essays introduce to art history the issue of cultural identity in the production of scholarship. Offering a new approach in which the cultural identities of art makers and interpreters play a constitutive role, this collection begins a trenchant dialogue that will revise our understanding of scholarly work in modern art history, Jewish studies, and cultural studies.
