About Nachman Libeskind

NACHMAN LIBESKIND

Born in Lodz, Poland in 1909, Nachman Libeskind settled in the United States in 1959. Despite his lifelong love of art, he never had an opportunity to pursue art studies in his native Poland. The Holocaust, Soviet gulags and the struggle to survive as an immigrant, prevented him from realizing his dream of painting until 1981. Upon the death of his beloved wife, Dora, he sought solace in art. He did not produce his first painting until 1981, at the age of 72.

Inspired by his life-long love of music and far flung travels, Libeskind explored art in a variety of media ranging from oils to acrylics and felt collages. His most important goal in exhibiting his works was to convince the viewers, no matter what their age, that it is never too late to explore one’s creativity and to make new discoveries.
