Private Tour of the Sassoons Exhibit at The Jewish Museum
April 18 @ 10:00 am
Jewish Museum Private Tour of their newest exhibit: The Sassoons
During our Kevin Draper Walk and Learn on prominent Jewish families on the Upper East Side each walk ended in front of The Jewish Museum which made me think – we need to go INSIDE The Jewish Museum.
Timed in conjunction with our two opportunities to experience Parade we have two opportunities for a private tour of their newest exhibit which sounds FASCINATING. Both tours will be at 10am and will be pre-opening hours which means we will have the museum to ourselves when we are there.
From the Museum’s website:
The Jewish Museum presents The Sassoons, an exhibition that reveals the fascinating story of a remarkable Jewish family, highlighting their pioneering role in trade, art collecting, architectural patronage, and civic engagement from the early 19th century through World War II. The exhibition follows four generations from Iraq to India, China, and England, featuring a rich selection of works collected by family members over time.
Over 120 works—paintings, Chinese art, illuminated manuscripts, and Judaica—amassed by Sassoon family members and borrowed from numerous private and public collections will be on view. Highlights include Hebrew manuscripts from as early as the 12th century, many lavishly decorated; Chinese art and ivory carvings; rare Jewish ceremonial art; and Western masterpieces including paintings by Thomas Gainsborough and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, and magnificent portraits by John Singer Sargent of various Sassoon family members. The Sassoons explores themes such as discrimination, diaspora, colonialism, global trade, and war that not only shaped the history of the family but continue to define our world today.
