Painting and identity
Visitors travel in painting inspired by the Orient with the exhibition The Jews in Orientalism. The famous road of the East brings artists, between 1832 and 1929 to meet the Jewish communities of the Mediterranean coast. They then make a scenic representation often dreamed that lived. These sketches feed on large canvases, like The Jewish Wedding of Eugene Delacroix. Mingle religious aspirations and archaeological curiosity, as revealed by the paintings of Jerusalem. By linking ancient biblical and contemporary East, some of these artists seek to find their Jewish identity Eastern. Children's workshops.
