Warhol became fascinated with a group of influential Jewish figures – a pantheon of great thinkers, politicians, performers, musicians and writers, including renowned philosopher and educator Martin Buber (1878-1965). Martin Buber’s famous portrait is featured alongside others such as Sarah Bernhardt, Louis Brandeis, Einstein, Sigmund Freud, George Gershwin, Franz Kafka, the Marx Brothers, Golda Meir, and Gertrude Stein in the Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century series. The collective achievements of these famous Jews changed the course of the twentieth century and may be said to have influenced every aspect of human experience.
