Belonging and Betrayal: How Jews Made the Art World Modern

October 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Temple Isaiah (Lexington, MA) will host an evening talk with Charles Dellheim about his new book.

Since the late 1990’s the fate of Nazi stolen art has become a cause celebre, a controversial issue that has attrated a great deal of public attention. In his new book, Belonging and Betrayal, Professor Charles Dellheim reveals how certain Jewish outsiders came to acquire so many old and modern masterpieces, and what this reveals about Jews, art and modernity. The book tells the epic story of the fortunes and misfortunes of a small number of eminent art dealers and collectors who, against the odds, played a pivotal role in the migration of works of art from Europe to the United States and in the triumph of modern art.

Charles Dellheim, an award winning scholar, is currently Professor of History and Jewish Studies at Boston University. A native New Yorker, he was the founding Director of the Kilachand Honors College at Boston University, and the inaugural Kilachand professor.

This is a Live Program, held at Temple Isaiah. Consistent with temple policy, masks and vaccinations are required.
