The Making of Modernism: The Jewish World, Art, and Culture


It is extraordinary to discover, that within a few decades of Jewish artisans making their way into the Cultural Milieu of Paris and later New York, they were redefining Modern Art. Significant art dealers Bernard Berenson and Gertrude Stein, painters Amedeo Modigliani and Marc Chagall, American gallery and museum owners Alfred Stieglitz and Peggy Guggenheim, art critics Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg created, defined, and expanded the International definition of “What art is.”
