From time to time we create substantial academic collections from our inventory to support teaching and research programs at both graduate and undergraduate levels. We also create book collections—both large and small—for individuals, decorators, museums, archives and libraries.
ROSY LILIENFELD'S BAALSHEM DRAWINGS
A unique collection of 88 signed charcoal drawings by the German-Jewish artist illustrating Martin Buber's "Legende des Baalschem." The works, 34 of which were published by
R. Löwit Verlag in 1935, illustrate 14 short stories that recount the spiritual triumphs and teachings of the founder of modern Chassidism, Rabbi Israel ben Elieser. While Lilienfeld (whose work was confiscated by the Nazis as "degenerate art") did not survive the Holocaust, her Baalschem drawings evocatively document a powerful Jewish mythos during a time when the traditional and the modern mingled briefly in Weimar-era Frankfurt. Illustrated prospectus upon serious inquiry. $165,000.
