Imprisonment of Natalia Davydova in Odesa

The story about detention of the artist Natalia Davydova by Cheka in Odesa in winter, 1920 resembles a horrible surrealistic story from absurd theatre play. Bolshevik revolution in 1917 and further terrible events have left her without anything. The picture presents the sketch by AGITPROM, 1919. The building of local Cheka, the most horrible place in those days, is behind the Statue of Katherine II (wrapped in fabric with stars).

The engraving of the end of ІХХ century shows so called Prison Castle on Lustdorf Way, Odesa. It’s here, where Natalia Davydova’s younger son has died and where she has been imprisoned for most of her confinement term after artificial indictment. On the right, the two-stories building of women department is visible, which Davydova depicted in her diary “Half-year of imprisonment in 1920-1921”.
