Photoshop Kabbalah Modern (Mid-Century Gershom Scholem)


The sitz im Leben of modern Kabbalah studies. Friend Jay Eidelman posted this photo at FB, and I’m putting it up here immediately. I’m being told by Margaret Olin that the large piece in the back is Knoll furniture.And, of course, there’s the iconic black Eames chair and ottoman. Adam Black asks, “did he have no legs? but M thinks he’s not wearing pants. Thanks, Jay, for the great picture. Alas, I got busted. The photo has been confirmed as a photoshop. But I’m keeping the picture because it looks great and because it makes sense.
