ART AND THE JEWS OF MOROCCO. Andre Goldenberg. Somogy editions d'art, Paris, 2014. 240 pp. with 472 ills. (431 col.). 29 x 26 cm. ISBN 9782757208939 In English.
Publisher's description: For centuries, the artistry of the Jewish community in Morocco has flourished -- as much in urban areas as in the countryside -- in metalwork, manuscripts, silks, wool, leather, woodwork. Often, this creativity has given birth to exceptional works that showcase the talent and originality of artists and artisans who have nonetheless remained anonymous. Originally from Morocco, Andre Goldenberg is an ethnologist who has devoted a significant part of his life to collecting the art of the Jews of Morocco, artefacts that show a unique artistic perspective and an extremely fine artistic quality. The extraordinary collection of objects assembled in this volume reveals the multiple facets of the art of Moroccan Jews, while the meticulous research that accompanies the catalogue promises to preserve this culture for future generations. This richly illustrated book constitutes an imaginary museum, carefully detailing hundreds of masterpieces of Jewish Moroccan art gathered from public and private collections in Morocco and abroad.
