Volume 1, The Universal Jewish...

Created by Reform Rabbis and Jewish Scholars, many of whom escaped from Nazi Germany, the Encyclopedia exhibits a unique sensitivity to all forms of anti-Semitic agitation and malice and makes every effort to find allies among others, especially Christians, to forge a shield for Jewish people in the face of the coming catastrophe.

ART, JEWS IN THE UNIVERSAL JEWISH ENCYCLOPEDIA The art of Jo Davidson is revealed in this model for a statue of  The Pioneer Woman, designed as part of a monument erected in Oklahoma in 1930 ton; Percy Fridenberg and Howard Lilienthal, respec-tively president and vice- president of the New York Physicians Art Club; Joseph H. Freedlander, architect of the Museum of the City of New York and president of the Fine Arts Federation of New York; Julius Wangenheim, president of the Fine Arts Society of San Diego; Herbert Fleishhacker, president of the Μ. H. de Young Memorial Museum of San Francisco; and Edward Μ. M. Warburg, formerly an art lecturer at Bryn Mawr College, now associated with the Museum of Modern Art. The Rodin Museum in Philadelphia was founded by Jules Mastbaum. Ernest Peixotto, president of the Mural Painters of America, is chairman of the Depart-ment of Painting and Sculpture of the Fontainebleau Fine Arts and Music School Association, of which Walter Damrosch is the president. The School of Fine Arts at Fontainebleau, France, is the direct outcome of the alert A. E. F. s Art Training Center at Bellevue, France, conducted by the American Army, the head of the faculty having been George S. Hellman, director of instruction in Fine and Applied Arts, A. E. F. Dur-ing the Armistice period, in 1919, many thousands of American soldiers and officers pursued their courses in the Fine and Applied Arts under the instruction of the group that included Mr. Hellman and Mr. Peixotto. While this work may have been the most important in its ramifications wherein American Jews have been engaged abroad, the finest institution in America for the encouragement of art, and one founded by Jews, is the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, of which the Hon. and Mrs. Simon G. Guggenheim, the founders, are respectively president and vice- presi-dent. Its purpose is  to provide opportunities for scholarly research of an advanced character and for creative work in the Arts including Music. Many artists— Jews and non- Jews— have already benefited by this intelligently directed and constructive Foundation. If recognition has thus in recent years been given in art circles to the administrative capacity of Jews, it is no less true that in recent years also their creative talent has come largely to the fore. Although there are a few important names, the record is not impressive during the first century of the existence of the United States. Therefore, instead of following the obvious method of historical sequence, it seems preferable to plunge in medias res in recording the contribution of Jewish painters, sculptors and etchers to the art life of America. Living Artists The following list is hardly more than a check list. The country or city and date of birth are given, in most instances, followed by a few words in reference to prizes and awards, and to museums wherein the artists are represented, with here and there a brief comment. To artists generally accepted as the more important, separate articles are devoted in this Ency-clopedia, in the proper alphabetic sequence. ( 1) Painters. William Auerbach- Levy, b. Russia, 1889, is especially distinguished for his etchings, which have gained numerous prizes and medals. He is the instructor of etching at the National Academy of Design and at the Educational Alliance. Florence Hochschild Austrian, b. Baltimore, 1889, was the winner, in 1930, of the Bronze Medal given by the Maryland Institute Alumni Association. Hugo Ballin, b. New York, 1879, is especially known for his mural paintings, the ceiling of the Governors Room in the Capitol at Madison, Wisconsin, being one of his decorative works that have gained him various prizes and medals. A. C. Baylinson, b. Moscow, 1882, is one of the most important pupils of Robert Henri.
