HUC CONNECT: IMAGINING ESTHER: THE SPLENDID ILLUSTRATED ESTHER SCROLLS IN THE HUC COLLECTION

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 11 Adar 5781

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Explore the history and art of Esther scrolls, created and used for the celebration of Purim, which often feature a cycle of elaborate and fascinating illustrations and the interplay of text and images. While the format of the scroll was maintained for this biblical book, for centuries the artists of these scrolls readily adopted the predominant aesthetic traditions into their decoration, reflecting a rich variety of artistic styles along with the continuity of the scribal traditions.
