SAUL RASKIN

widely displayed in many hun-
dreds of Jewish homes.
Last year the Jewish Museum
of New York exhibited his crea-
tions, and other museums con-
ducted exhibitions of his works.
He is survived by his wife, the
former Raya Rosenthal, who was
a drama critic for the Day; a
son, Eugene, former professor
of architecture at Columbia Uni-
versity; two grandchildren, two
brothers and two sisters.
The artist, who was born in
Kiev, studied art in Berlin and
in Paris before coming to the
United States. He started his
career as a lithographer and
cartoonist before World War
One.
He came to the United States in
1904 and earned a living as a com-
mercial artist. In 1947, he pub-
lished "Land of Palestine" which
contained more than 300 of the
drawings and paintings he execut-
ed in five visits, the first in 1921.
He made a sixth visit afterward
when the Jewish State was estab-
lished. The book contained also
selections from his short essays on
Palestinian Jewish life, in Eng-
lish, Yiddish and Hebrew.
He was known, too, for his
sketches of New England fisher-
men as well as of pushcart ped-
dlers on the Lower East Side.
Mr. Raskin's numerous works
have been on exhibition in Detroit.
A retrospective show of his works
is planned for the near future at
the Garelick art shop in tribute to
his memory.
Mr. and Mrs. Pelavin attended
the funeral service in New York.
They also had visited with the
eminent artist a week before his
death and they then completed ar-
rangements with him for the wid-
est distribution of "Ovinu Mal-
kenu."
Mr. Raskin's son and widow said
that in deference to the wishes of
their father and husband his gal-
lery, at 5 W. 16th St, which also
was the Raskin home, will be kept
open indefinitely as long as the
interest in the famous Raskin
paintings continues.

Too Many Zeroes

IN MEMORY OF

SAUL RASKIN

Whose rare warmth and dedication to the essential spirit
of Jewish tradition have won him a special niche in the
hearts of all his admirers, and whose memory will be a
lasting tribute to the universality of his art.

We here, at Garelick's Gallery, are proud to have been
associated with him throughout all the years of the Gallery's
existence, and we record his passing with deep sorrow.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Even for Gertrude Berg, $2,000,-
000 a week would have been a
rather large salary in Depression
America. The Jewish News er-
roneously reported that the late
actress earned that sum on stage
and radio in the 1930s. Actually,
she earned $2,000 a week.
