The Art of Jews and Christians in the Altarpieces of Medieval Spain
December 03, 2009Print this article
The production of religious art in late-medieval Spain was a complex, cooperative relationship between Christian and Jewish artists. Jewish and Christian artists worked side by side in studios producing both retablos (large multi-paneled altarpieces), as well as Latin and Hebrew manuscripts. The exhibition tells the story of this fascinating collaboration and provides a glimpse into these artistic communities.
The exhibition is on view through May 30, 2010, at MOBIA, 1865 Broadway, New York, NY.
