Description:
AXELROD MYER (MARK) MOISEEVICH (RUSSIAN 1902-1970) Double-sided Watercolor of a Woman and a Landscape, 1930 watercolor on paper 52 x 35 cm (20 1/2 x 13 3/4 in.) signed and dated on verso, inscribed on recto Description Mark Axelrod was a well-known Russian (Soviet) painter, graphic, and theatre artist of Jewish origin. He is best known for his watercolors depicting the lifestyle of Jewish people in the Russian Empire and the USSR. Axelrod was born in Maladzyechna, a small Jewish town in Belarus, where as a child he survived a pogrom and moved to Russia during World War I. In the 1920s Axelrod graduated from VKh UTEMAS and began teaching in VKh UTEIN and the Textile Institute (1928-1932). At this time, he became one of the members of the "4 Arts" group. He was frowned upon in Soviet newspapers for pessimism, sketchiness, deformations, incomplete nature and even his proximity in style to Modigliani, and was thereby forced to shift to book illustrations and theatre work. In particular, he worked for the Belarus State Jewish Theatre and sometimes for Moscow State Jewish Theatre. During World War II, his brother, poet Zelik Axelrod, was executed (1941), and Axelrod himself lived in evacuation in Alma-Ata (1941-43), where he supported Jewish refugees from Poland. While in evacuation, Akselrod was part of Sergei Eisenstein\\`s crew during the filming of "Ivan the Terrible." Many of Axelrod\\`s paintings are dedicated to Jewish scenes, for instance the series "Ghetto" (1968-1969) and "In the Steppe" (based on his impressions from the trip to agricultural Jewish commune in Crimea in 1930-1931). The poet Arseniy Tarkovsky valued Axelrod\\`s work highly, remarking that the artist\\`s iron will made his artwork beautiful and honest. Axelrod\\`s works are kept in collections of the Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum, and the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts. His work was barely known outside the former Soviet Union until his daughter, Elena Axelrod, published her father\\`s biography and a representative collection of his works in Israel in 1993.
