Treasures from Spertus

September 21, 2003 to August 1, 2004

Passover Seder Set Heilbronn, Germany, 1913-1914

Friedrich Adler

This exhibition spotlighted 80 seldom-seen objects from the Spertus collection. It explored issues of provenance and authenticity, and looked at the questions raised when pieces created for ceremonial use are viewed as art. Called “exquisite” by Museums Chicago magazine.
