Quick, name a famous Jewish female artist!
This is easy! Uhhh... uhh.... give us a moment...
Going to check our Artists category?
Ummmm.... no, why would you say that?
No, go ahead, check, but let's not count photographers.
Are you saying photography is not art?
For the sake of this question, let's say yes.
Fine, then... uhhh...
Stumped, aren't you?
You know, Jew or Not Jew, you can do better. Some 3000 profiles and how many Jewish female artists... One?
Alright, here is another: Sonia Delaunay.
Doesn't sound too Jewish.
Delaunay was her married name. She was born Sonia Stern in what is now Ukraine.
And she is famous?
As far as artists go, quite so. She was one of the founders of Oprhism, an offshoot of cubism. She was always the first living female artist to have an exhibition at the Louvre. Famous enough for you?
Let's just hope we don't have to wait another 3000 profiles for another Jewish female artist...
