Download PDF for this date

The Venice Biennial International Art Exhibition, considered the most important art exhibition in the world, which has been opened at Venice by King Victor Emmanuel, contains the work of a large number of Jewish artists, several of whom have been given the honour of one-man shows with special rooms of their own at the exhibition. These include the Italian Jewish sculptor Arrigo Minerbi, the Italian Jewish painters Aldo Carpi, and Dario Viterbo, the Russo-Jewish painter Moise Kisling, and the Russo-Jewish sculptor, Zadkine, who both live in Paris.

The British Pavilion includes the work of Jacob Epstein and Bernard Meninsky, and the organiser of the American Pavilion is Dr. Martin Birnbaum, a New York Jewish art authority.
