9780815609018: Past Imperfect: 318 Episodes from the Life of a Russian Artist (Judaic Traditions in Literature, Music, and Art)

As a soviet underground artist, Grisha Bruskin was propelled to prominence after the unprecedented success of his paintings at the Sotheby Moscow auction of 1988. Since then his work has been exhibited all over the world at the Guggenheim, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the Jewish Museum in New York.
Past Imperfect deftly captures the artist's experiences as a Jew in Russia, the reality of life in an empire permeated by ideology, and the centrality of family. Saturated with insight and irony, each story offers a small vignette of Bruskin's life. Photographs throughout the book create a distinct dialogue between word and image. Alice Nakhimovsky's elegant translation conveys Bruskin's sharp wit and strong style, superbly rendering Past Imperfect in English.

Review:

A fascinating translation of a memoir-in-anecdotes by the brilliant artist and writer Grisha Bruskin. -- Mann About Town

Thoughtfully written, it is wry and incisive, expressing an artist's vulnerability, steely resolve. --Jewish Book World

Grisha Bruskin, a very successful Russian Jewish expatriate artist, tells the story of his life through a series of pithy, succinct anecdotes. They are full of the mordancy that often characterizes the work of artists who have lived under Soviet rule. Bruskin was born in 1945, and this book is a fascinating picture of growing up Jewish in post-war Russia. As in pre-war Western Europe, Bruskin and his contemporaries suffered constant anti-Semitism but knew very little about being Jewish. He conveys a sense of a fairly normal upbringing, despite the repressive society around him. He speaks fondly of his family memories, and includes wonderful photographs of his parents and grandparents as they lived out the ideals of the Revolution. As an unsanctioned artist, Bruskin suffered the constant harassment of the official establishment, and with ironic humor, he gives the details of his struggle to exhibit his art. The book includes photographs of details and fragments from his work, including his brilliant, profound series of Jewish-themed works, the Alefbet series. His art borrows from Jewish history, religion, and kabbalah to create mystical images in a style eminiscent of medieval paintings. The work is at once reverent and disturbing. Though this is a well-written book about a major Jewish artist, the art itself is not traditional. The book will find a place in comprehensive collections about Jewish art, collections that emphasize modern Russian Jewish history, or collections of Jewish biography. --Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter Dec 2008
