Jewish art in modern era

Challah breadThe efforts of Jewish artists before and after the World War II can never be forgotten.
Contemporary artists’ works still commemorate the effort of their ancestors with the past and the present manipulation of art. The portrait painted by Felix Nussbaum in 1943 reflects a wide-eyed fear, which implies the adversity and misfortune that Jews suffered during medieval times.

The work of Mark Rothko has been completely realized now when he painted the modern day tabernacle using blocks of colors that signified a sanctuary for worship to the highest power and to remind people of history and of what his ancestors underwent.
