    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.

    Physical Details

    Physical Description
    Hand-colored etching on paper removed from a publication. It depicts a man standing in right facing profile, feet apart, with his right hand resting loosely on the waistband of his gray trousers. He has short, dark brown hair with a curly sideburn resembling a sidelock and stereotypical Jewish features: thick eyebrows, a large nose, and a fleshy lower lip. He wears a black top hat and shoes with an unbuttoned brown tailcoat over a white, high-collared shirt and striped yellow neck cloth. His clothing is lightly shaded with cross-hatching. He stands outside, the ground brown beneath him, a low, irregular shadow to the left, and small stones and tufts of grass scattered around the title and 2 lines of publication information printed to the right. There are handwritten markings on the back.
