Description
   A record of the past life of the Jews in Kolo, near Lodz, Poland in 14 lithographs. Moses Soyer describes this work: "In contrast to the removed and unworldly worlds of Chagall and Weber, his is a realistic and social one. He has given us a record of a segment of life of the Jews in Kolo, near Lodz (Poland). It is a deeply human, persuasive and artistic record worthy of preservation."

Harry Daniels was born and grew to manhood in the little town of Kolo, Poland. He immigrated to the USA, and spent his remaining years in New York City and the Catskill Mountains of New York. His paintings, serigraph paintings, lithographs, handmade prints, and portfolios present us with a record of a segment of the past life of the Jews in Kolo, near Lodz, Poland.

Harry Daniels is a listed artist, whose work may be found in the Jewish Museum in New York City, and in the Jewish Museum in Belgium. These prints and serigraphs were hand made by Harry Daniels in his studio in the Catskill Mountains. Sadly, his studio burned to the ground shortly after his death and the original plates were destroyed in the fire. Few of his prints survive in private hands as well as those that exist in museums collections
