Glasnost has opened the door
for the art work of an expatriate

Special to The Jewish News

lasnost has hit the
art scene. On July 7,
the first international
art auction took place in
Moscow conducted by none
other than Sotheby's. Several
thousand miles away, the Hir-
shorn Museum in Washing-
ton, D.C. opened a loan ex-
hibit of early 20th Century
Russian avant-gardists like
•Kandinsky and Malevich,
whose works for years have
been gathering dust in Rus-
sian museum storerooms.
Contemporary Soviet artists
now have shows in Soho and
Paris.
"The art scene in the Soviet
Union has totally changed,"
Margarita Tupitsyn, an
emigre art historian said in a
recent Newsweek story called
"Art in from the Cold!'
For F.S. Lemberski, a Len-
ingrad portrait and landscape

artist, glasnost is two decades
too late. But for his widow,
Lucy (Ludmilla) Lember-

took with her dozens of her
husband's sketches, draw-
ings, paintings and guaches.
"I brought seven big boxes,"
says Lemberskaya. Until a
few months ago they had re-

changes in Moscow Lember-
skaya felt that perhaps the
time had come for others to
see some of her husband's
oeuvre. She wasn't the only
one.
"I thought his works should
be shared," says Evan
Maurer, the soon-to-be-
departing University of
Michigan Museum of Art
director who never had heard
of Lemberski but was im-
pressed by what he saw when
he recently viewed Lember-

ski's works.
Others took notice as well.
"He was a mature talent!'
says artist John Moga who
also viewed Lemberski's pain-
tings. "They're wonderful!'
With the recent installation
of a show — the first in the
U.S. — at the Jewish Com-
munity Center of Washtenaw
County the public at large
can see the work of this Rus-
sian artist.
"He was very sensitive and •
emotional. All his life's pur-
pose belonged to art," says
Lemberskaya, who met her
husband in 1934 at the
