Special MLK Renard: The Book of Esther in Art: Race, Religion and Resistance

In anticipation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday, this slide lecture exams the various images inspired by the Book of Esther in terms of racial difference, religious doctrine, and activism in Jewish and Christian art, from Dura Europos Synagogue (c. 244 C.E.) to contemporary works. Beth S. Gersh-Nešić, Ph.D. is an art historian and the director of the New York Arts Exchange, an arts education service. She specializes in 19th century, modern and contemporary art. Currently, she teaches art history at Mercy College. Her most recent publication is Pablo Picasso and André Salmon: The Painter, the Poet and the Portraits (Za Mir Press, 2019¬). Beth is a staff writer for Bonjour Paris, an online magazine.
