Once Upon a Time in Lithuania by Naomi Alexander
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Naomi Alexander is an accomplished artist in the "kitchen sink" tradition of John Bratby and post-impressionist Pierre Bonnard. When invited by the Europas Parkas Museum in Vilnius to be their first artist in residence she decided to draw Jewish culture as her family roots go back to 18th c Lithuania. She draws what she sees: the vast forests and their dark secrets, the poor people that now live in the homes where Jews once lived, dilapidated buildings, synagogues and cemeteries and the churches that still loom over the old Jewish areas. Additional information and quirky captions give a sense of the present day struggles of Lithuania's small Jewish community.
