Mark Podwal is renowned for his innovative ink drawings and paintings of the Jewish experience. Initially known for his drawings for The New York Times Op-Ed page, he is the illustrator of numerous books in collaboration with the likes of luminaries such as Elie Wiesel, Harold Bloom, and Francine Prose.
Reimagined: 45 Years of Jewish Art is a massive collection and first monograph of this famed and prolific artist; one who has connected with art lovers from New York, Prague, Israel, and everywhere in-between. In this extended collection, the reader encounters the diverse array of works that represent and span Podwal's illustrious career -- from the whimsical, such as Matzoh Moon and Talmud Typewriter, to the political, such as Munich Massacre and Annexing Arab Anger, to the religious, which includes Passover Haggadah illustrations and textile designs from the world's most historic synagogues.
Luxuriously produced and spanning 45 years of intensive work, this collection of Podwal's oeuvre contains more than 350 gorgeously reproduced artworks that imaginatively illuminate Jewish legend, history and tradition. Reimagined is a must-have not only for collectors of Jewish art, but for anyone interested in the process of creating beautiful and original drawings and the personal evolution of a major artist.
