From Krakow to Pico

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/from_krakow_to_pico_19991129

When Pavel Vogler left Krakow for Southern California in 1992, he brought almost 100 of his favorite paintings. The darkly shaded oil works in blue, black and purple show Vogler's vision of his hometown and its medieval Jewish quarter, Kazimierz, filled with empty synagogues. Moonlight, twilight and the glow of streetlamps illuminate Vogler's Polish works, where ghosts of a Jewish history haunt cobblestone streets.
