The Book of Job in Art: From Byzantium to Blake and Beyond

From Byzantine manuscripts of the 9th century to paintings by Albrecht Dürer and Georges de la Tour, the Book of Job has inspired artists through the ages. Most notable is the cycle of illustrations produced by the nineteenth century English poet, painter, and printmaker William Blake. Also included will be representations of the Job story in works from the Skirball Museum’s collections and temporary exhibitions. 

Enjoy this conversation between Abby Schwartz, director of the Skirball Museum at Hebrew Union College and Dr. Anu Mitra.
