About Yehuda Pen.

Yehuda Pen - Yuri Moyshevich Pen (18541937) was a Jewish-Belarusian artist-painter, a teacher and an outstanding figure of the Jewish Renaissance in the Belarus art of the beginning of 20th century.
The artist was killed at home in Vitebsk at night March 1, 1937. The circumstances of his murder remain unknown. There is speculation that he was murdered because of his connection to his former student, Marc Chagall.[From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.]
