St. Patricks's Day

By John J. Walsh

 

Next to the God that gave thee soul

You love the distant Emerald Isle,

Overspread with dews that glistening glean,

Where lovely scenes in beauty smile,

Your pulsing heart, your Irish heart,

Is still as twas in days long over,

The Fenian fire made hot its blood

Beside your old, loved Rooksey Shore

 

Say could that blood that fired you then

With manhood's thoughts and vigores glow,

Now in its lesser power despise

Its love of land of long ago?

As well, as vain, as useless, too,

To blend the night with noontide ray;

And, hence, it is I pray my God

To ever guard and guide thy way.

John Walsh was my grandmother's older brother who left Ireland to attended a seminary in Baltimore in 1908 but left to become a co-founder of the first Catholic Film Company in Hollywood. He was also one of the founders of the American Theatre Guild, wrote countless film scrips, New York plays and was a bright and wonderful guy (or so my family told me).

Starting April 2, 2020, a major new exhibition, Chagall, Modigliani, Soutine... Paris pour École, 1905-1940will explore the works and stories of Jewish artists who came to Paris in the early 20th century. The exhibition will be housed at the Museum of Art and History of Judaism (Musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme - known as "mahJ"), located in the magnificent 17th-century Hôtel de Saint-Aignan in the historic Marais neighborhood of Paris.

The exhibition, which will run until August 23, 2020, will showcase 130 works by Jewish artists who were 'members' of "the School of Paris" (1905 to 1940). Many of the artworks are being publicly exhibited for the first time. These artists, including major names such as Marc Chagall, Chaim Soutine and Amedeo Modigliani, came to Paris from all over Europe, Asia and the Russian Empire to create their art in a free and modern context, without the religious or social constraints present in their home countries. "The School of Paris" period did not represent a "school" in the traditional sense, but it linked these artists through a shared history and ideology.

In addition to featuring works from renowned Jewish artists, the exhibition will also display works from lesser-known artists such as Michel Kikoine, Jules Pascin, Chana Orloff, Moïse Kisling, Jacques Lipchitz, Walter Bondy, Henri Epstein and Adolphe Feder.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog co-published with the Réunion des musées Nationaux, as well as a series of panel discussions, readings, guided visits and children's activities held at the mahJ.
