The seemingly effortless process by which a suitable title is selected for an encyclopedia such as this became exponentially more complex and difficult as I explored the available options and heard the mounting arguments from all sides. Finding the right mix of words was crucial. After pondering the subject for several months in an effort to arrive at the best possible title, I finally opted for "Around Jewish Art."

He started to take part in exhibitions in Moscow in 1957 and then went on to insinuate everyday objects into his paintings. He regularly exhibited abroad from 1965 but faced problems with the Soviet authorities. As a result of his crucial role in organising the 1974 “Bulldozer” exhibition Rabin was expelled from his local union of artists and became a target of harassment in the official press. Stripped of his Soviet citizenship in 1978, he left for France and had his first solo exhibition in 1984 in the U.S. Rabin notably evoked the plight of the Jewish people in his works and one of them, titled “Jewish Passport”, was considered as being one of his best paintings.
