Pintado en palabras: Una memoria


Pintado en palabras: Una memoria


In this Spanish translation of Painted in WordsPintado en palabras, Samuel Bak sets aside his brushes to narrate the story of his life — as a child in Nazi-occupied Vilna, as a youth in European refugee camps, and as a maturing artist in Israel, France, Italy, Switzerland and the United States. Lovingly, he evokes his departed parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, along with their household employees, to create a vital gallery of dramatic, lyrical, epic, and sometimes absurd heroes. With gentle humor, the child prodigy of the faraway past and the accomplished artist of today engage in a spirited dialogue from which emerges a self-portrait of the "Artist as Young — and middle-aged and aging — Survivor."
