Yale University Press: The Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization 2020

The talented Jewish people made numerous contributions to science, cinema, and more, as well as art, including painting, where their works are held in high esteem throughout the world.

The life path of an artist is not easy, and the path of a Jewish artist even more so. But we can trace their artistic message throughout all the stages of the historical development of art. Professional Jewish artists who studied in the according school, appeared only in the middle of the 19th century. But in view of their really powerful talent, Jewish artists inevitably expressed their personality, showing ethnic and cultural specificity. Because of this, Jewish avant-garde artists are considered the most valuable among the works presented in the catalogs of the Posen library.

The Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization is an ever-growing, exclusive collection curated by Judaism scholars that offers unparalleled direct access to thousands of excerpts from original sources reflecting Jewish creativity, diversity and culture around the world, from the biblical times to the 21 century.

This publication makes for a great source of information for anyone interested in Jewish history, biography, fiction, religious and political works, art, as well as famous artists, cultural artifacts.

Its Volume 9: Catastrophe and Rebirth demonstrates the vitality and diversity of the Jewish response to the Holocaust. It tells about the birth of the State of Israel, traces the expulsion and resettlement of Jews from Arab lands. The artists included in this catalog are recognized by many art connoisseurs, and these works are much more valuable than others.

The amazingly talented artist Moses Feigin is also listed in the Guinness Book of Records as "the oldest working professional artist." He painted various styles and subjects - from post-Sezanne landscapes to abstraction, from menorah violinists to Christ. Moses Feigin, having gone through the Soviet period, and having mastered and reworked the traditions and ideas of the middle of the last century, consciously came to modern art at the turn of the millennium.

The works of artists included in The Posen Library's catalogs are considered valuable, and usually has a much greater advantage over the rest at an auction. This created an oipportunity for a promising lucrative investment, given the increase in the cost of Russian avant-garde art every 5-10 years.
