Helzel, Florence B.
Shtetl Life. The Nathan and Faye Hurvitz Collection.

Berkeley Judah L. Magnes Museum: 1993.

"A wide range of shtetl life, both secular and spiritual, is illustrated in the seventy-five works illustrated here. Tradition, religion, family, and community are recurring themes. Scenes of Shabbat, ritual, occupations, personal hardships, and vivid character studies of scholars and rabbis afford a fascinating glimpse into a world that had existed for centuries. Most of the fifty-two artists were born in a shtetl or born to shtetl parents. Artists include Budko, Chagall, Sigmund Forst, Todros Geller, Gropper, Peter Krasnow, Ephraim Moshe Lilien, Louis Lozowick, Abel Pann, Lionel Reiss, Ryback, Ilya Schor, Toulouse Lautrec, Max Weber and Solomon Yudovkin".

Softcover. 6.5"x9.5", 155 pages, black & white illustrations. Fine.
