Biography  
Isaac Benich Rabichev


Biography from Sotheby's New York

Isaac Rabichev spent his early career in Kiev studying in the studios of visionary artists Alexander Murashko and Alexandra Exter.  He promoted the creation of Jewish-centric art, and along with Issachar Ber Rybak, Abraham Manievich, Marc Chagall and Robert Falk, he served as a core member of the Artistic Division of the Jewish Cultural League that was formed in Kiev in 1918.  The group sought to fuse traditional Jewish imagery with concurrent, avant-garde techniques.

Rabichev moved to Moscow in 1922 with several other members of the group, and there he turned his focus to the theater, collaborating with the State Jewish Chamber Theater in the early 1920s.
