Savor the sites, sounds and people of Odessa of the 1920s. A center of literary and artistic culture for the world, Odessa was home to some of the 20th century’s most important Jewish writers and artists, including Yefim Ladyzhensky.

My Odessa: Paintings by Yefim Ladyzhensky is a presentation of a city and land in the midst of revolution through the paintings of Ladyzhensky. Ladyzhensky’s paintings share memories that are both recognizably drawn from life in Soviet Odessa, and highly specific and personal. The specificity of Ladyzhensky’s subjects and colors illustrates his particular relationship to the city of his youth: a place of heartfelt fondness and longing. His Odessa was a dynamic city rich with humor, arts, and Jewish life.
