Leopold Pilichowski

August 10, 2010

Lodz, Poland, 1869 – London, England, 1933
“Give lie to those who stubbornly assert that Jews do not have a sense for the fine arts.”
– Leopold Pilichowski

Leopold Pilichowski studied art in Munich and in Paris. When Pilichowski returned from Paris to Lodz he was struck by the poverty and hardship that the Jewish people encountered there. Pilichowski´s portraits from that period on are affecting glimpses into the struggle for life for Polish Jews. He was very accomplished and painted many important portraits including the Chief Rabbi of France and Theodor Herzl. Pilichowski´s finely drafted works are representation masterpieces.
