Salon Paintings of the Leo Baeck Institute

This portrait of the children of an upper-middle class Jewish family was painted  in the 1920s by Adolf Ziegler, who would eventually become president of the Nazi Chamber of Art in 1936.

The exhibit will showcase works of such prominent artists as Max Liebermann, Lesser Ury, Julius Schulein, as well as works by artists who did not necessarily rise to prominence. The paintings evoke the contemporary Zeitgeist as well as the ever-changing status of the Jewish population from the 18th through the 20th centuries.
