Traces of a Jewish Artist, with Kerry Wallach

Contact Eva Gellman

Graphic artist, illustrator, painter, and cartoonist Rahel Szalit (1888–1942) was among the best-known Jewish women artists in Weimar Berlin for her soulful, sometimes humorous illustrations of Jewish and world literature. But after she was murdered in the Holocaust, she was all but lost to history, and most of her paintings have been destroyed or gone missing. In this free virtual talk, Kerry Wallach will focus on the process of rediscovering Szalit and offer a close look at her art.
