Footnotes

  • For Samuel Bak, the Holocaust is the defining event of modern history, and moreover, redefines our perception of European culture past and future. To regard his work merely as a late flowering of surrealism is to misunderstand its objectives and its unique relevance as a pictorial pilgrimage into the second half of the century. It is a world of dreams, of obsessions that return again and again but bear little resemblance to everyday reality. It is history painting, bold in its ambition and eloquent in its technique.
