Rychter May Anna

1865-1955

Anna Rychter came to Jerusalem from Germany in 1923, following her husband the artist Tadeusz. He was commissioned to restore Vitrages in churches. She earned a living by selling miniatures in the old city. The Rychters were accepted into the Jerusalem art community even though they were not Jewish. They were especially close to Ludwig Blum and Leopold Krakauer.
They were both high standard academic water-colorists. Their works combine professionalism and poetry.
In 1939, with the beginning of the Second World War, Tadeusz returned to Poland and never returned. Anna stayed in Jerusalem until her death in 1955 at the age of 90. Until the end she did not know the exact fate of her husband.
