An Artist on the Eastern Front Feliks Topolski 1941

Price: $19.95

In September 1941, a British transport convoy arrived in the port city of Arkhangelsk, in the far north of the Soviet Union. In addition to delivering supplies desperately needed by the Soviet Union—Britain’s ally in the war against Nazi Germany—the convoy also carried an artist, Feliks Topolski. An Artist on the Eastern Front presents more than two dozen sketches made by Topolski over the next two months, a unique view of everyday life in the Soviet Union at a time when the invading German army occupied much of the country and threatened to take the capital city of Moscow. The book includes an essay by art historian Laura Brandon that places the work of the Polish-born, London-based Topolski in the context of the official British war art campaign during the Second World War.
