The Synagogue Cross Stitch Pattern - Max Beckmann

What an interesting design this is! This downloadable cross stitch design was based on the painting The Synagogue by German artist Max Beckmann in 1919. The massive Synagogue (the subject of this painting) was located at Börneplatz in the historic Jewish quarter in the heart of Frankfurt. Unfortunately, it was burned down by the Nazis in 1938.

Beckmann painted The Synagogue from unrealistic and iconographic perspectives. You will find many icons or symbols in this painting such as the cat, the funnel-like horn, the balloon, the double moon, etc. which seem inexplicable but very captivating. The three figures in front of the temple are known to be friends of Beckmann’s on their way home after a night of carnival festivities.

The Synagogue is one of a series of city views done by Beckmann prior to his dismissal from his position at the Städel School in 1933. The Nazis did not like his artistic style.
