Chasing Portraits: A Great-Grandaughter’s Quest for her Lost Art Legacy

Moshe Rynecki’s body of art work, which depicted the everyday lives of the Polish-Jewish community, reached close to 800 paintings and sculptures before his life came to a tragic end.

His son George left behind journals detailing the losses the family endured during WWII, including Moshe’s art. Elizabeth Rynecki, George’s granddaughter, knowing that her family had only found a portion of Moshe’s art, set off on a quest to recover the lost art. She tells her story of the devastation of war and of the healing she found as she set out to find her great-grandfather’s lost art legacy.
