Catalogue linked to the exhibition "Issachar Ber Ryback", presented at the Museum of Art and History of Judaism (March 8 - December 31, 2022).
Between 1917 and 1921, his works were nourished by the stylistic innovations of cubism and cubo-futurism, in the service of an iconography marked by Jewish popular art and Hebrew letters.
In kyiv, in 1918, he participated in the creation of the artistic section of the Kultur-Lige, a secular Jewish organization aimed at promoting Yiddish culture. The following year, in the review Oyfgang, he published with Boris Aronson the text-manifesto of avant-garde Jewish art "The voices of Jewish painting", in which he defended an art combining European pictorial innovations and Jewish traditions, to express a true Jewish vision of the world.
The dream of Jewish cultural autonomy in Russia was shattered with the definitive victory of the Bolsheviks in kyiv in December 1920. The center of Jewish life then moved to Moscow for a time, then Ryback left for Berlin in 1921. At the end of 1925, he settled permanently in Paris.
