About Henryk Winograd:
Henryk Winograd was one of the world's greatest 20th Century masters of traditional silversmithing techniques (he recently passed away in his 90's) and was the leading practitioner in America of the historic art of Repousse. He was born in Poland, of Russian parentage, from a lineage of silversmiths to the Czar. He was trained as a silversmith in Poland and, after serving in the military for several years, he came to the United States in the 1970's. In just a few short years, his works of art found their way into the hearts of serious collectors as well as casual enthusiasts.
Mr. Winograd used the art of repousse and each one of his pieces was designed by hammering pure silver sheets into crafted molds. As true art forms, his designs have a sharp, high relief. The delicacy of the detail of his work is superb and the quality of his execution is breathtaking. The process requires great talent, patience and dedicated attention to detail.
Henryk Winograd recently passed away - he was in his nineties. We were fortunate that his talent was able to create incredible small masterpieces in pure silver until the very last years of his life. Each Winograd piece is unique and is signed and copywritten.
Winograd's silver works of art are getting harder and harder to find on the open market as they have been collected worldwide for over 60 years! It's likely his work will grow more valuable since his passing. His work is always of museum quality and, in fact, his work graces many museums throughout the world.
