Asenyka As Seen By Grandfather Yefim Ladizhinsky 1980 year
"It was like an explosion, an eruption, though not of a volcanic fire-splitting despair, but of the purest fountain of a childís joy, their spontaneity and delight in the face of the multicolored, multidimensional world opening in front of them for the first time.
The pretext were the drawings of the artistís five-years-old granddaughter, charming in their naivety, their sweeping and yet unconscious talent.
Touching this world, absorbing the pull of creativity, as in a game, Yefim Benzionovich as if passed though the hearth of a soul stripped from the crust of every day life.
From the monograph of the art critic Gregory Ostrovsky
