Focusing mainly on the visual arts in the Habsburg empire during the 1880s and the Russian empire during the 1920s, Sandqvist analytically discusses the Jewish participation in the historical and cultural formations of the regions. Modernism was originally associated with--blamed on--Jews, but later accounts of modernism neglected to mention Jewish contributions, so he seeks a balance. His topics are attaching; Jewish art; the Russian context; partitioned Poland; in Bohemia and Moravia; Jews and Magyars; Paris as the point of impact; and art assimilation, and Jewish modernity.
