Jewish Art and Life

The Mantua Haggadah was first published in 1560; the version displayed here is from the second edition in 1568. The influence of Italian Renaissance art, to which Italian Jews were exposed, is evident in the depictions of flower bouquets, flying angels, and figures reminiscent of Michelangelo’s paintings.
