Event Details

The Jewish Heritage Museum at the Reutlinger Community (Danville) is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition:
Moshe Rynecki: In Their Own Voices January 10 – April 30, 2020

Inspired by Elizabeth Rynecki’s book and film, Chasing Portraits: A Greatgranddaughter’s Quest for Her Lost Art Legacy, we share the voice of the artist and two generations of the Rynecki family in exploration of Moshe Rynecki’s documentation of pre-war Warsaw Jewish life.

Through the 1981 catalogue of the Magnes Museum’s exhibition, Moshe Rynecki: 1881-1943, curator Ruth Eis selections organize and words narrate the exhibition.

The 2000 donation of the Ruth and Max Eis Collection of Judaica created the Jewish Heritage Museum. Display of its objects will complement the Rynecki images. Paintings by Ruth Eis will also be on display, thanks to donations by the Rude and Rynecki families.

The Jewish Heritage Museum would like to thank the Rynecki family for the reproduction of the artwork, the catalogue loan and other ephemera. We are grateful to the University of California Bancroft Library and The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life for permission to reproduce the catalogue and their donated Rynecki painting.
