About the Artist
Chenoch Lieberman's career as an artist began in the Soviet art world of the 1920's and 30's. It was the outset of his creative quest and provides insight into both the political and artistic history of the period. Lieberman's experiences during those years left an indelible imprint on his later work.
The vigorous creative activity that abounded in the 1920's was one of the results of the revolutionary upheaval occurring in Russia at the time. The first post-revolutionary decade is rightfully regarded as the golden age of the arts in Soviet Russia because of the presence of a large number of great artistic personalities, and the abundance and diversity of artistic forms and the experience of art schools and artistic trends which began in cities such as Moscow, Leningrad, and Kharkov. The outstanding painters of that time - Alexander Labas, Meir Akselrod, Mendel Gorshman, and Chenoch Lieberman - created drawings and watercolors which drew much attention in Russia and throughout the world.
Easel painting forged ahead a an independent sphere of art as a result of the work of these artists. It was in this sphere that the creative power of Chenoch Hendel Lieberman emerged in all its fullness; the distinctive features of his easel drawings of that time are the richness and diversity of genre and subject matter best demonstrated in his Birobidjan and urban scenes.
