About Ilya Schor

Ilya Schor, 1904–1961, painter, engraver, sculptor, metalsmith.

Ilya Schor revisited and celebrated his Hasidic roots in much of his work. Born in Galicia, the son of a folk artist and sign painter, he apprenticed as a silversmith and engraver. He studied painting at the University of Warsaw. Schor and his wife, artist Resia Ainstein, gained visas to the United States in late 1941. For the next two decades he continued to work in a variety of media, creating illustrations, paintings, jewelry and works for synagogues.
