VIDEO: Women of the Bible, paintings series by the Jewish artist Raquel Partnoy

Women of the Bible, paintings series by the Jewish artist Raquel Partnoy: Eve, Miriam, the daughters of Lot, Esther, Ruth and passages from The Song of Songs.

In 1994, when Partnoy visited the Jewish Museum in New York for the first time, she became impressed by the images and the rich textures of the ancient religious objects. It was then that she thought that she would need a different material than oil painting to portrait the life of the Jewish people and the stories of the women of the Bible. She chose fabrics to create the collages, more specifically, discarded fabrics she found at some upholstery stores and at dressmakers shops, to tell those stories about dreams, exile, and hopes.
