Around Jewish Art
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."

Born in the small shtetl of Beshenkovichi of the Vitebsk Gubernia, Yudovin showed an interest in drawing at a very young age and was noticed by Yehuda Penn, one of the famous Jewish artists of the time, who took him under his wing. In 1910 Yudovin went to Saint Petersburg to study painting but soon had to find a work to earn a living. He had his first exhibition in Petrograd in 1917 and then produced an album of Jewish ornaments, a theme that remained important in his work throughout his career. Yudovin continued his education with two established artists, M. Bernshtein and M. Druzhinsky. After 1920 he worked solely as a printmaker and illustrator and frequented Chagall's school in Vitebsk until 1923. He had his first solo exhibition in 1926 in Vitebsk and also acted as caretaker for the An-sky collection of ritual objects deposited at the Jewish National Museum in Petrograd until this institution was closed down in 1928. During World War Two, Yudovin stayed in Leningrad, which was besieged by German troops and depicted those harsh days in a set of engravings called “Leningrad in the days of the Great patriotic War”.
