Anna Rychter-May

July 1, 2010

Germany, 1865 – Jerusalem, Israel, 1955

Anna Rychter-May followed her common law husband Tadeus Rychter to Israel in 1923. Tadeus was a talented Polish watercolorist. The couple was close with many people in the art community in Jerusalem despite the fact that they were Christian but they were banned from becoming part of the Jerusalem Art Association. Tadeus returned to Poland during WWII and lost his life there but Anna stayed in Jerusalem where she died at the age of 90. The delicate, sensitive aquarelles by Rychter-May are very rare. Her careful renderings and intense colors are distinctive and remarkable.
