Australian Jewish Artists

Brief biographies of a range of Jewish artists in Australia, from the early nineteenth century onwards.

The copy in this section of Jewish History Australia is in part created by linking to appropriate short artistic biographies on the web.

Some of these "external" pages feature thumbnail images of art works; clicking on a thumbnail image will produce a full-size image.
Other linked pages require use of both bottom and side-bar "sliders" to bring all images into view.
