Jewish Museum, RB Kitaj

Jewish Museum
In 1969, painter RB Kitaj made 50 screen prints based on books in his library, stains, rips and all—”an intellectual self-portrait”—and through early August, the museum will have 33 of them on display. Well into September, it will also exhibit a comprehensive retrospective (the first in America!) of Jack Goldstein, the Canadian-born painter and filmmaker who transformed familiar images from pop culture by removing certain details and context, most famously with the roaring MGM lion.
