Moshe Bernstein

December 10, 2010

Poland, 1920 – Tel Aviv, Israel, 2006
“I once again bring you the experiences and dreams of my longed-for past, because for me it is an enchanted garden which I walk as if intoxicated by its fragrances and its beauty, and from which I draw the inspiration for my work”

Moshe Bernstein studied art at the Art Academy of Vilna in 1939. His family murdered in the Holocaust, but he survived the war and lived in Russia until 1947, when he immigrated to Israel. He often painted and drew images of the Shtetl life that he grew up in. These images emotionally captured in graceful brush strokes allow a window into a world that no longer exists.
