The Exquisite Art of  Arthur Szyk

Irvin Ungar, Founder/CEO, Historicana 

Arthur Szyk Society curator Ungar will give a PowerPoint presentation based on the recent exhibit, “Arthur Szyk: Miniature Paintings and Modern Illuminations” at the Legion of Honor. Szyk, a self-described soldier-in-art, created profound, intricate works of art. He advocated for many causes, including religious tolerance, racial equality and for the state of Israel. Ungar was recently featured in The New York Times. Books, including Szyk’s unique Passover Hagaddah, will be  available after the presentation.
