A Journey from Russia to America.
Shvartsman planned to be an engineer and a scientist with never any thoughts of painting or writing -- but life decided his fate on his own. The moment this strong-willed person found paints, an artist was born. The fifty full color prints are extraordinary faithful to the reach colors of the originals. Their themes reflect a troubled life. This artist used whatever means he could find to bring us the true feelings of the events in which he was an active participant.

A Word From Vladimir: I encourage you to take this book neither as my diary, nor my biography. It is a humble attempt to record some events that happened in my life.
