By 1650 half of world Jewry lived in the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth; by 1939 the proportion was still as high as 10%. This book demonstrates how between 1770 and 1945 Polish painters depicted Jews as familiar figures integrated into the Polish landscape. The author places the paintings of Jews and their environment in their artistic, social and political context.
