Pinchas Maryan Polish, 1927-1977


World War II left its mark on Pinchas Maryan physically and artistically. Great artists such as Emil Nolde, Max Beckmann, and others knew how to create a more interesting canvas by not literally painting what they were trying to convey. Pinchas Maryan (formerly “Burstein born of Jewish heritage) was Polish but lived in America as well; miraculously survived the unspeakable inhumanity of the Auschwitz prison camps to tell his story with paint and brush. 


It is quite interesting to note that Maryan has a dedicated niche following and has achieved several strong auction records.
