    Brief Narrative
    Print depicting two elegantly dressed women buying oranges from a Jewish street vendor. It was made by Luigi Schiavonetti after a painting by Francis Wheatley. This print was included in the 1924 book, Cries of London, record 2016.184.686, a set of thirteen prints depicting London street workers. These picturesque scenes of urban outcasts, known as London Cries, poor people who made their living on the London streets, were the most lastingly popular series of English prints. The pictures feature street vendors, such as Jewish fruit, rag, or ribbon sellers, and depict them as diligent workers deserving respect, not as nuisances or figures of fun. The print is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.

    The Katz Ehrenthal Collection is a collection of more than 900 objects depicting Jews and antisemitic and anti-Jewish propaganda from the medieval to the modern era, in Europe, Russia, and the United States. The collection was amassed by Peter Ehrenthal, a Romanian Holocaust survivor, to document the pervasive history of anti-Jewish hatred in Western art, politics and popular culture. It includes crude folk art as well as pieces created by Europe's finest craftsmen, prints and periodical illustrations, posters, paintings, decorative art, and toys and everyday household items decorated with depictions of stereotypical Jewish figures.
