Artistic Focus An artist whose works focused closely on Jewish and historical themes, often addressing issues of human suffering and protest, Bernard Baruch Zakheim came to America in 1920. The Polish native began his art studies in Warsaw, then studied in Danzig and Munich. When World War I ended, he was unable to return to Poland and sought political asylum in the United States.
• Settling in San Francisco, Zakheim studied at
the California School of Fine Arts.
The Gallery proudly represents the Estate of Bernard Baruch Zakheim.
