Meir Axelrod

Major Russian Painter - Meir Axelrod  1902-1970

The work of Meir Axelrod provides a uniquely comprehensive and sensitive view of the life of Russian Jews from the 1920s to the end of the 1960s. Born in a Byelorussian Jewish settlement, a survivor of pogroms, forced to leave his home together with his family during the World War I, a student and later a teacher at the famous Vkhutemas and member of the "4-Arts" Society, he exhibited his work throughout the world.
