Imagine a generational puzzle which a Great-Granddaughter tries to solve. Elizabeth Rynecki tries to gain knowledge by searching continents, finding remnants and listening to stories passed down from a community in wartime Warsaw, Poland.

Moshe Rynecki was a prolific painter of daily and religious life in his beloved Warsaw. His work was the caliber of other Jewish artists who fled to Paris during the war.

Using social media she has re-created Moshe’s work in a most unique way. And her new film Chasing Portraits highlights his life, times and artwork. Although most of Moshe Rynecki’s paintings show Jewish Faith, Family & Community, and Men Working, Elizabeth has uncovered a lot of paintings that show Women doing daily tasks and being whimsical.
