Saturday Is For Art: 2 drawings by Simeon S. Zigler



This week I picked up these two drawings that I had framed that depict the village in the Ukraine where my father lived for approximately the first 10 years of his life. The top drawing is the way he remembered the apartment complex that he lived in with his mother and father and his older sister Ida and his younger brother Dave. The bottom drawing depicts a view of the village as he remembered it. These drawings were done sometime during the 1960s, some 40 years after he and his family left the Ukraine and came to the United States.

Yes, He drew them some time in the early 1960s.

Beautiful drawings. Amazing he was able to do this from a memory half-a-century old.
