The question is not only how did a man make such beautiful art works but how did a man who as a Jewish child age 9, live seven years in concentration camps, survive, have his family murdered, and still make this beautiful art?




About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Great question. I can’t even my first question, how did he survive? All I can think of for your quetion is that escape into a brightly colored fantasy far remote from the horrors he endured is, if not the only art he can create without pain, at least a way of maintaining some sanity, even an approach to balance.
