"Baigell, the premier scholar of Jewish American art, has written what promises to be the definitive study of its political and social concerns in the 1930s, tracing them back to the 1880s, and showing how they were informed by the artists’ religious heritage."—Donald Kuspit, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Art History and Philosophy, State University of New York at Stony Brook

"Baigell reaches deep into new sources to present a stimulating and needed treatment of a neglected topic in the annals of Jewish, American, and political art. I read the book wanting to know more about a few artists I was already familiar with but came away with a fascination for a whole generation of Jewish artists that is mostly lost to history."—Samuel D. Gruber, president, International Survey of Jewish Monuments
