What moves the reader is how from lives of uprooting, deprivation and, often, persecution, 20th C. Jewish artists created art that is vibrantly exploratory, ultimately life- affirming. Here is Bomberg’s 1913 ‘Vorticist Racehorses’; Gertler’s, ‘Rabbi and Rabbitzin’; Epstein’s tremulous 1921 bust ofKramer; Jankel Adler’s Cubist etching, ‘Ein Jude’, Soutine’s miraculous ‘La Soubrette’; a meditation on the Holocaust by Chagall. Illuminating essays explore ‘The Whitechapel Boys’ (Richard Cork), ‘Soutine, Chagall and the School ofParis’ (Sarah MacDougall) and the postwar predicament ofJewish refugee artists in Britain (David Herman).
