See Henry Mosler Behind the Scenes at the Cincinnati Art Museum from June 10th through September 4th.


The Cincinnati Art Museum joins the citywide commemoration of the Jewish Bicentennial with an in-depth examination of the life and work of Henry Mosler (1841–1920), the most important painter of Jewish faith from nineteenth-century Cincinnati. Henry Mosler Behind the Scenes: In Celebration of the Jewish Cincinnati Bicentennial will be on view from June 10 to September 4, 2022.

More than 30 works by the artist are selected from the museum’s permanent collection. A few notable loans include Mosler’s Plum Street Temple, from the Skirball Museum at Hebrew Union College.

The exhibition traces his journey as a young artist who apprenticed as a wood engraver, then as a painter. It also reveals his activities as an artist-correspondent for Harper’s Weekly during the Civil War.

Mosler achieved an international reputation in the late nineteenth century for narrative paintings rich in detail. He was born in Prussia to a Jewish family who immigrated to the United States in 1849. They settled in Cincinnati soon after. The artist won success at the Salon exhibition in Paris for paintings depicting the rituals of daily life in Brittany.

Mosler was also an avid and accomplished draftsman, as reflected in the more than six hundred drawings in the museum’s remarkable holdings. This wealth of Mosler drawings enables us, for the first time, to display his oil paintings side by side with their preparatory studies.
