Abraham Manievich is first English-language publication to chronicle the life of this artist, and will reintroduce 130 of his images to the public record and present new scholarship The painter Abraham Manievich was a prominent figure in the artistic worlds of early twentieth-century Europe and America. Born in the small Russian town of Mstislavl in 1881, his artistic training in Kiev and Munich led to early success. Until now there has been no comprehensive study of the involved symbolism that underlies his major paintings, works that the authors believe require examination within the context of Jewish Futurism. This discussion of the attributes and ideas characteristic of Jewish Futurist painting, especially as it pertains to Manievich and his contemporaries, such as Chagall, Natan Altman, and Vladimir Baranoff-Rossine, will further the understanding of the contribution of Jewish artists to the artistic and literary avant-garde of the time.
