Solomon Yudovin was born in 1892 in the Lepelsky district of the Vitebsk province. He received his education in St. Petersburg at the Drawing school Society for the encouragement of artists and private studios Bernstein and Dobuzhinsky. In the 1920-ies he worked as scientific Secretary and custodian in the Museum of the Jewish historical-ethnographic society.
Yudovin survived the “death” time in besieged Leningrad, and in the summer of 1942 was able to be evacuated to the Yaroslavl region. After liberation, he returned to Leningrad and created the engraving, where he depicted a city under siege. This album, released in 1947, became one of the symbols of the blockade.
