CATALOGUE NOTEAsknasy was born near Vitebsk of wealthy Hassidic parents. He
attended the Academy of St. Petersburg where he became acquainted
with the sculptor Antokolski. At the Academy he was criticised for
his preoccupation with Jewish and biblical subjects, but, as an
observant Jew, he was excused from attendance on Shabbath and
festivals. His refined, academic style gained him a strong
reputation after his return from four years of study in Italy. His
works rarely appear at auction.
