A Jew in Love. Philip Roth and R.B. Kitaj
26 January 2013
Program accompanying the special exhibition "R.B. Kitaj (1932-2007) Obsessions"
The figure of wanton puppeteer Mickey Sabbath in the novel "Sabbath’s Theater" by Philip Roth was modeled on his longtime friend and neighbor, but other characters in the author’s works also have elements of R.B. Kitaj. In some surprisingly delicate drawings, R.B. Kitaj in turn portrayed Philip Roth.
