    Brief Narrative
    Catalog for an anniversary exhibition of 32 works by Hieronymus Hess (1799-1850), in the Kunsthalle Basel. Hess was Swiss painter, caricaturist, and model maker, active in Naples and Germany, as well as Basel. From 1828-1934, Hess was known for his collaborations with Anton Sohn, who had a terracotta figurine workshop in Zizenhausen (Baden), Germany. Hess made models of works by Basel painter Johann Rudolf Brenner for Sohn's exceptionally detailed and elaborate tableaux. The subject matter ranged widely and included genre and satirical groups on popular, topical themes, and religious figurines. This portfolio is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic 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.
