The Skirball exhibition, 'A Portrait of Jewish Cincinnati', will feature portraits of Cincinnati's movers and shakers from the early 19th century to the present day, gleaned from our own rich collections as well as those of the Cincinnati Art Museum and Mercantile Library, and private collections, both local and national. Visitors will engage with portraits of the merchants, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, politicians, scholars, and community leaders who helped make Cincinnati the Queen City of the West. Paintings and sculptures by such renowned artists as Sir Jacob Epstein, Raphael Strauss, Henry Mosler, Moses Ezekiel, John Aubery, David Holleman, and Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik will be featured.
