Mark Podwal: All This Has Come Upon Us…

Artist, author and illustrator Mark Podwal, is best known for his drawings on The New York Times OP-ED page. The exhibition features Podwal’s drawings and paintings of historical threats of antisemitism. Each image in this series depicts a tragedy or injustice in Jewish history, from slavery in Egypt through the Holocaust, and is paired with a verse from Psalms. According to Podwal, “the paintings and drawings in this series are a disturbing reminder of how Europe’s extensive history of ‘Jew-hatred’ laid the groundwork for Terezin and Auschwitz.” MORE>
