Arthur Lidov's Imaginative Art
Work Elevates Him to Top Place
Among World's Artistic Geniuses

Science and imagination, the
genius of a great artist is inter-
M.5 woven in the work of Arthur
Lidov, whose illustrative depic-
tion on the workings of the
human body, on our nervous
system and the circuits of the
,
senses, as related in the text
ri) written by Robert Campbell in
Life Magazine, is attracting the
z attention of artists, literary ex-
!: perts and scientists alike.
Lidov, who is a nephew of
Miss Anna Oxenhandler of De-

troit, is in his middle forties,
1-5
but long ago, as a very young

man, he had already captured
acclaim of critics and won
the admiration of art lovers.

Hear family, guests, cheer for
that real Italian flavor created by
famed Chef Boy-Ar-Dee. Tender
little macaroni pies...filled with
tangy Italian Cheese..,simmered
with savory tomato sauce and
cheese...seasoned the real Ital-
ian way. So much tastier and
easier than the frozen kind. So
much thriftier, too—costs only
about 15c per serving!

His works have appeared in
many magazines and he has
illustrated books and special
articles. For an entire year his
front page covers in Mercury,
in 1948, were noteworthy.
Often, his art work for ad-
vertising copy attracted as
wide attention for their ima-
ginative effects as did his
other illustrations.
Now he ranks among the
world's great artistic - geniuses,
and his series of articles with
Campbell in Life form the high-
light in a great career.
Arthur Lidov has his home
and his studio in Poughquag,
New York, but while working
on his articles in Life he main-
tains an apartment for himself,
his wife, their son and daughter
in mid-Manhattan.
Incidentally, his w if e and
children have acquired his love
for art and all have shown
ability as painters; sculptors
and illustrator's. Before their
m a r r i a g e, his wife, Sandra,
taught English and poetry at
Radcliffe.
He was born in Chicago in
1917 and began drawing and
painting at the age of 9. He
earned his Bachelor of Socio-
logy degree from the Univer-
sity of Chicago at 19 and gave
a year to the Illinois Project.
Then he went to Palestine
where he taught English, art
and geometry at a high
school, in addition to working
as a surveyor's assistant, car-
tographer a n d construction
hand. He speaks Hebrew and
has a fine Jewish family
background.
Upon his return to this
country in 1938 he spent three
years painting murals far the
Illinois Art Project. Rejected
for service by all of the U. S.
armed forces—he was ill from
accidental burns as a child for
more than a year—he went into
defense work as an inspector
and machinist.
Lidov is largely self-taught.
His art works have been ex-
hibited throughout this country
and in other lands and his fame
as an artist now is worldwide.

turer.

cept Sundays, from 11 a.m. to
