Catalogue Note

Henryk Winograd was born in Poland in 1918, and learned silversmithing as a teenager.  He emigrated to the United States in 1972, and under the patronage of Belle Rosenbaum focused on Judaic ritual pieces. 

She conceived Winograd's first work after Oppenheim's series on Jewish life, done as silver-gilt plates with cloisonné enamel surrounds.  These were shown at the Yeshiva University Museum in 1992, and the numbers in the description correspond to this sequence of subjects.  Shortly before, the silversmith expanded the centers of these plates into these larger, stand-alone plaques of the scenes, which have descended in the Winograd family.
