Marc Chagall, a great painter of the twentieth century, is known throughout the world. But few people are familiar with the work of his first teacher Yehudi Pan, an artist from Vitebsk, who stood at the sources of Jewish professional art in this country and tutored a galaxy of Vitebsk artists. The latter have left a notable imprint on Jewish art, which has to this day earned little recognition. Jewish Artists From Vitebsk, the next book to be published in the Masterpieces of Jewish Art series, will deal with the work of Yehudi Pan and his disciples. Drawing on documents unearthed by him, art critic Grigory Kazovsky describes in lis book the original school of Jewish art that emerged in Vitebsk in the early 20th century. Most of works included in the book are published for the first time.
