"Schor’s skillful and painterly approach to Sophie Halaby’s life, work and city gives insight into the remarkable character of a Arab-Russian woman . . . and into her cosmopolitan city of Jerusalem, sketching for us memories of a place that we can barely perceive through the dismal haze of the Israeli-Arab conflict. Like Sophie Halaby’s paintings and work, Schor’s book outlines the wispy contours of a world full of potential where the salons of Paris were just a steamer ticket away for an aspiring Arab woman artist, but one that is constricted by war, colonialism, nationalism, and expropriation over the course of the twentieth century."—Leila Hudson, associate professor, University of Arizona

"A rich, nuanced, and sensitive treatment of this brilliant but often neglected painter. The work is especially valuable for its investigation of Halaby’s formative years as a Russo-Palestinian artist growing up in Kiev and Mandate Palestine."—Salim Tamari, professor of sociology, Birzeit University, and research associate, Institute for Palestine Studies
