The exhibition Jewish Painters and Modernity, Montreal 1930-1945, organized in 1987 by Esther Trépanier at the Saidye-Bronfman Centre Art Gallery, was an opportunity to discover early works by a number of artists from Montreal’s Jewish community, inviting us to follow the individual development of each of them. The current Moe Reinblatt retrospective is a response to this invitation. It is in some ways an elaboration on the previous venture, a voyage of exploration in search, not of an entire community, but this time of a single man. New perspectives emerge as we learn more about the work of this artist who, as a Montrealer and the son of Russian-Jewish immigrants, found himself at the confluence of several sources of inspiration.
