Henryk Epstein .........(1)
(Lodz 1891 - 1944 Nazi concentration camp, probably Auschwitz)

Henri Epstein enrolled in Jakub Kacenbogen's drawing school in Lodz, before studying at the School of Fine Arts in Munich. He visited Paris for the first time in 1912 prior to his service in the Polish army. He then returned to Paris and settled at La Ruche from 1913 to 1938 and studied at the Académie de la Grande Chaumiere. Although Epstein's early work was influenced by Fauvism, he then adopted an expressionist technique. In 1921, he illustrated Gustave Coquiot's Vagabondages and in 1925 Pierre Bonardi's Les Rois du Maquis . He also probably contributed to the ephemeral Jewish artistic journal Machmadim published at La Ruche and to Renaissance magazine for which he wrote articles in Yiddish. In 1938 Epstein bought a house in Épernon which became his refuge during the Occupation. In 1944, Epstein was arrested by the Gestapo to be interned in Drancy camp and murdered in Auschwitz.
