On offer is a remarkable original handwritten personal diary, workbook and artist sketch book of Arnold Daghani. The green leather book is written in long hand English and contains original literary works; poems, short stories, musings and references to his works plus much, much more with most of them dated 1955 through 1958. At the end a story titled "Noodles and Buttons in Cakes of Soap", it says this story was in 1946 awarded the one and only prize for stories then under the title of the "Yellow Bridge". On the two first pages there is an ink self portrait of a young Daghani and another in the abstract style. Born into a Jewish family in Suceava, Romania (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire), Daghani and his wife were imprisoned in and escaped from an Ukrainian labour-camp, in the 1950s left Romania to live in Israel, France, Switzerland and finally England, settling in Hove in 1977. Many of Daghani's works document his experiences in the slave-labour camp of Mikhailowka (1942-3) and in the ghetto of Bershad. His works from the 1960s and 1970s relate to broader themes of contemporary life, including music, literature, religion, politics and the circus, as well as the difficulties of being an artist. Daghani has become well known in his native Romania and major collections of his works are to be found in the National Gallery, Romania and the Museum of Modern Art, Bucharest and at Sussex University as part of the Centre for German-Jewish Studies. He has been collected widely in England and abroad. A large 4to measuring approx. 29 x 22 x 4 cm. 402 pp, 55 blank. The clasp lock is broken, no key. Some rubbing on the leather covers otherwise G+.
