To Paint is to Live: The Artwork of Erich Lichtblau-Leskly

February 19, 2021 – May 30, 2021

The exhibition highlights the life and works of Erich Lichtblau-Leskly, a Czech Jewish painter from Moravia whose peaceful life with his wife Elsa and promising career as a commercial designer were shattered following the Nazi partition and subsequent invasion of Czechoslovakia. Following the invasion, they moved to Prague and were eventually deported to Theresienstadt.
