Converted Masters

World Famous Masterpieces with a Jewish Twist

This is a Menorah Book.

In this elegant coffee table book, author Esty Frankel-Fersel “converts” classic art masterpieces into Jewish counterparts. Imagine Vermeer’s zoftig milkmaid kneading challah or Moses bringing down the tablets amid a Georgia O’Keefe desert landscape.

A vibrant Kandinsky color plate, gold foil stamp and glossy black background are featured on the book’s cover. Inside, each traditional masterpiece is shown opposite its “converted” version, allowing the reader to search for the sometimes obvious, sometimes more subtle differences. The works of art reproduced span from early 16th century classical Renaissance works to modern day pop art.

Every “converted” painting is an original work by the author, most created with oil and acrylic on canvas in glowing color. Explanations of the Jewish content are provided alongside each reproduction for readers not familiar with Jewish observances. A special section of popular Yiddish expressions matched to famous works of art is sure to draw chuckles.

Converted Masters is an excellent conversation piece and a terrific gift for anyone Jewish. But it’s also great for those with an interest in Jewish tradition, or anyone who simply enjoys a laugh!

This is a Menorah Book.
