An excerpt from “Gottlieb”, a film produced by the Israeli Film Service on the centenary of the death of painter Maurycy Gottlieb.
Batshewa Scheflan, the granddaughter of Laura Henschel-Rosenfeld, painter Maurycy Gottlieb’s fiancee, reveals how she found out about her family relations with the renowned artist. “She would always tell us about the genius, the young painter Maurycy Gottlieb, to whom she was engaged,” says Scheflan about her grandmother. For years, Scheflan did not believe that Gottlieb was indeed a great painter until she accidentally ran into his picture, displayed in the Tel Aviv Museum. Scheflan says she immediately ran to tell the museum’s director Eugene Kolb about her relation to Gottlieb, and that Kolb “jumped off his chair” in excitement.
