Rembrandt and the Jews: The Berger Print Collection

Price: $20 + shipping

Featuring an essay by Dr. Lisa DeBoer.

The relationship Rembrandt had with the Jews of Amsterdam is a remarkable story. Most were Sephardic Jews – refugees from the Inquisition in Spain and Portugal. For many generations these Jews had been forced to deny their religious legacy, but in Amsterdam they were free to reclaim traditions and return to their Judaism. Rembrandt lived in Amsterdam’s prosperous Jewish neighborhood. In Rembrandt’s interpretation of Protestant Old Testament narratives, Rembrandt consulted Jewish theologians for a nuanced perspective of these familiar subjects. He also painted and etched portraits of prominent Jews.

Jan Albert Fürst Kolstad: Prints

Price: $5 + shipping

Featuring an essay by Øivind Storm Bjerke

The Legacy of Edvard Munch has contributed to the high esteem of graphical arts among Norwegian artists back to the 1920s. In the 1970s, printmaking blossomed in Norway, and Jan Albert Fürst Kolstad became part of this new golden age of Norwegian printmaking. Today he can look back on a prolific career as a master printmaker and artist. He has received numerous grants, has had more than thirty solo exhibitions and has been acquired by a dozen public and private art collections. Kolstad has been teaching for nearly twenty-five years at Asker Art School, which for many has been a preparatory study for further advancements into art academies.
