Her rebellion against Rome launched the destruction of Palmyra in 273. Palmrya sank into obscurity afterwards. Today Palmyra faces total destruction again. Will history repeat itself?

The Real Housewives is a reality television series that exhibits women in living the "good-life". They live ultra-chic lives, however they are not immune to adversity, humiliation and powerlessness. Artists in the 19th century also painted portraits of fancy ladies - however, like the Housewives, their lives were often not such a pretty picture. Included, topics on Jewish feminine identity, patronage, social and domestic life.
I use #DrawArt to explore if it was possible that Jewish women were at the center of Delacroix's 19th century Orientalist fantasy. 'Women of Algiers in Their Apartment' is a painting that influenced the development of Modern Art. I focus on digital innovations and Jewish art history from a feminist perspective to contribute to Tikkun Olam, or healing the world.
