I've posted a photograph, taken in Drohobycz, Poland (Galicia) today,Dear Pamela,
Amongst the teachers, second >from the right at the bottom row is Bruno
Schultz (Brunon Szulc in Polish), who was the drawing teacher and world
famous writer and painter.
See his other photograph:
Born in Drogobycz, Galicia, Schultz trained as an architect and during the
years 1924-39 taught art in the high school of his home town. In his novels,
he set his tales in a small town, much like his own, though bereft of local
color, combining authenticity with fantasy and myth. Schultz was a pioneer
of the magical and absurd and he mingled his personal recollections with
visionary fantasies. In 1938 Schultz was awarded a prize by the Polish
Academy of Literature for his two published works. During the Nazi
occupation he was murdered by the SS.
