For artist Nerys Levy, the choice was easy. “My deceased husband was Russian-Jewish,” says Levy. “I had grown up on the edge of Russian culture in our married life. So there was an emotional quality. I also knew this would be a wonderful artistic experience.”
As a landscape artist, Levy saw the trip down the Volga River as a creative opportunity. “The country has such a rich cultural history that has been submerged and is now re-emerging.”
