France

 

Kirszenbaum's immediate involvement with the avant-garde "School of Paris" afforded him exposure to the former generation's new occupation with light, broken brushwork and a focus on everyday life and the even more modern exploration of expressionism in both subject and means. During this period the artist delved into both mystical memories of the life left behind in the shtetl as well as the tragic experience of the displaced Jews.
