This Chart, Graph, Pattern was based upon the work of Russian Artist Issachar ber Ryback (1897-1935), Born in Yelizavetgrad Russia in 1897. He attended the Art Academy in Kiev from 1911-1916 and was an important contributor to the Kiev art scene until 1921 when he moved to Berlin where he participated in the historically important Berlin Secession exhibition. He initially experimented with Cubism and then began painting Jewish subject matter in the 1920s when critics and collectors began to appreciate his analytic Cubism and recognize his importance in the Russian vanguard movement. He was invited back to Moscow in 1925 to design costumes for the Moscow Theatre, before moving to Paris in 1926. In Paris he adopted a new style of Realism, portraying Russian Jewish "shtetl" life, bringing out the forceful, distinctive character of his Yiddish-speaking subjects without resorting to sentimentalism. Much of his collection was donated for the establishment of the Ryback Museum of Bat Yam in Israel. Ryback was an member of the Russian Jewish, modernist movement that included Lissitsky, Altman, Aronson and Chagall, all of whom were seeking to revitalize Jewish art during a period which saw the cultural efflorescence of Yiddish literature, music, theater, and art.
