It is interesting to see the venues where these exhibitions were held. This
gives a glimpse of Czernowitz life in the 30s. Ellen, thanks for raising
this interesting topic. Does anyone know where the “Bernfeld Bookstore”

Thank you for bringing up this topic and at the same time for the
opportunity to draw your attention to the Czernowitz Art Gallery, still
available at

I learned from the archives of the Czernowitz daily newspaper "Der Tag"

that following art exhibitions were organized during the interwar period
between 1932 - 1935:

September 7, 1932: Solo exhibition George Baron Löwendal - Bernfeld
October 30, 1932: Group exhibition Bukovinian Artists' Association
January 1, 1933: Solo exhibition Dr. Opanas Schewtschukewicz
February 28, 1933: Group exhibition Salogeanu, Nicu Pertache de Florian and
Dr. Silagi
June 6, 1933: Group exhibition Dr. Wladimir von Zaloziecki and Moses
Barasch - Toynbee Hall
August 18, 1933: Solo exhibition graphics Paul Konrad Hönich - Bernfeld
September 23, 1933: Solo exhibition George Baron Löwendal - Romanian
National Palace
April 8, 1934: Solo exhibition Isadora Constantinovici-Hein - Romanian
National Palace
April 28, 1934: Solo exhibition Moses Barasch - Hotel Schwarzer Adler
September 22, 1934: Solo exhibition Jadwiga Sedelmeyer-Boronska - Polish
National House
December 19, 1934: Group exhibition Bukovinian Artists' Association

It seems to me, that during the 1930ies there was not a particular museum of
art in town. Enjoy the Czernowitz art!
