Typo/Graphics: Studying Jewish Types in Print and Photography

On View: 
Aug 28, 2012 to Dec 7, 2012

The main gallery presents an exhibition drawn from The Magnes’ vast collection of prints and photography. The broad selection by director Alla Efimova is an investigation of the use of reproducible images in ethnographic and documentary studies of Jewish lives, since 18th century to the present. The selection includes the well-loved images by Marc Chagall, Hermann Struck and Neil Foldberg as well as works by less known and anonymous image-makers. The focus is on the study of Jewish types in communities throughout the world.


This exhibition was made possible in partnership with the following institutions/thanks to the following donors:
