May 4 – September 3, 2023 at the Skirball Cultural Center, California, USA
In these times of war in Ukraine, it is also interesting to look back at the cultural influence of people from this country. Like Peter Krasnow (1886-1979), who was born in Novograd Volynsk and lived for much of his life in Glendale, California. His work, inspired by his Jewish cultural heritage, the Yiddish language and old tales, blended with the carefree Californian spirit. The exhibition features his post-war paintings and their message of resilience, responding to the chaos and war scenes of his time with an influx of colour, joy and life.
