Rena Tobey: Virtual Tour of “The Sassoons”
April 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Virtual Tour of “The Sassoons” – new Exhibition at the Jewish Museum in NY
“The Sassoons” reveals the fascinating story of a remarkable Jewish family, following four generations from Iraq to India, China, and England through a rich selection of works collected by family members over time.
The exhibition highlights the Sassoon family’s pioneering role in trade, art collecting, architectural patronage, and civic engagement from the early 19th century through World War II through over 120 works—paintings, decorative arts, illuminated manuscripts, and Judaica—amassed by family members and borrowed from numerous private and public collections.
