About the Book
In this moving autobiography, Judith Weinshall Liberman traces her personal development as a woman and as an artist over the forty-five year period between 1947 and 1992. This development is seen against the backdrop of the important historical events of the time. It was in 1947, before the State of Israel was established, that Judith Weinshall, an unsophisticated 18-year old girl born in Palestine, arrived in the United States to pursue higher education. In accordance with her parents' wishes, she was to study journalism, while at the same time absorbing Western values, so she could contribute to her nation's cause when she returned to her native land. Despite deep misgivings about her studies, and notwithstanding her natural attraction to art, she spent seven long years in the United States studying journalism, political science and law and earning several degrees. Eventually she realized that she had to find her personal path rather than pursue the one laid out for her by others. She began studying art, and over the following few decades created numerous series of artworks about the human condition. While tracing her personal and artistic development, this autobiography reveals the artist's thinking in creating her artworks and illuminates the close relationship between her life and her art. Although she had not served her people in the way her parents may have anticipated, she felt that through her art she was serving not only the cause of her people but that of all decent people everywhere.
