Summary
The author's search for the story of his collection of netsuke, miniature Japanese carvings that he inherited, uncovers the fascinating history of the Ephrussi family, émigrés who came from Odessa and opened banks in Vienna and Paris. Wealthy and cosmopolitan, they were involved in the artistic and cultural movements at the turn of the century, until the Holocaust's heartbreaking impact.
Critique
A beautifully written memoir that combines history, art and detective work. Lovingly paints a picture of a forgotten influential family.
