The Pankowsky Collection: Paintings by Sofia Guttentag-Davidson
Sofia Guttentag-Davidson was born in Lodz, Poland in 1893. She studied art in Munich and then escaped to the Soviet Union when war broke out. After the war, she emigrated to Mexico and turned to art as a means of dealing with her difficult past. Guttentag-Davidson’s work brings her family’s history to life. Her artwork is a powerful representation of Jewish life before the war, the persecution of European Jewry, and her life and memories in Mexico.ABOUT TEMPORARY EXHIBITS
