If you weren’t able to make it over to the 92nd Street Y on Monday night for the tribute to Bruno Schulz, or even if you were, you can learn more about Schulz and his art from The New York Times. The Times published the article “Behind Fairy Tale Drawings, Walls Talk of Unspeakable Cruelty” back in February, which discusses the fascination behind this artist and writer, whose life was tragically cut short by the Nazis. Before Schulz’s untimely death, he was forced to illustrate a children’s playroom in a Nazi officer’s home and the article includes a slideshow of these wall drawings, currently on display at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. To read the article, and view the slideshow, please visit here.
