Jewish Artists

Signatures and Monograms

John Castagno

John Castagno's Artists' Signatures and Monograms have become the standard reference source for galleries, museums, libraries, and collectors around the world. Whether used to identify, authenticate, or verify signatures and works of both well-known and little-known artists, Castagno's work has no equal.

In this new volume, Castagno has collected more than 1,100 signatures and monograms of Jewish artists, as well as signatures of artists whose work reflects Jewish themes. In addition to the standard signature entries found in Castagno's other books, this volume features additional biographical information, providing a more complete profile of the artist and his or her work.

All artists are listed with the most updated information on nationality, birth and/or death dates. The entries direct the researcher to many biographical and bibliographical sources not found on web site searches, and many of the resources offer additional references. Several individual listings provide gallery referrals and catalog auction dates, which can be used to buy or sell a particular artist's work.

The use of
Jewish Artists: Signatures and Monograms provides the researcher a reference tool not duplicated elsewhere: one that will save many hours of research.
