Home > Dora Holzhandler

Dora Holzhandler was born to Jewish-Polish parents (Sehia Holzhandler, handbag maker and Ruchla Rocheman a singer and seamstress) in Paris, France, and came to live in London when she was six years old. She painted in the naive style, influenced by Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse.

Edna O’Brien wrote: “All of Dora Holzhandler’s paintings possess an ineffable tenderness, they make us recall our childhoods and myths, our roots, and if we have severed from these things, they make us long for them in a palpable way.”
