Jewish texts are a hidden treasure of information on Jewish art and artists, the patronage and use of art, and the art created by non-Jews. Most of these texts are written in Hebrew and Aramaic. Those scholars able to read them do not understand their art historical importance, while many art historians who would understand these references are hindered from access to these texts because of language barriers. Jewish Texts on the Visual Arts includes fifty-one newly translated texts dating from the biblical period to the twentieth century. They touch on issues such as iconoclasm, the art of the ‘other’, artists and their practices, synagogue architecture, Jewish ceremonial art, and collecting. Through the introduction and essays that accompany each text, Vivian Mann articulates the importance and relevance of these sources to our understanding of art history.
