Maurycy Minkowski (1881/82–1930) was a Polish painter of Jewish ancestry, best known for his genre scenes of daily life in the shtetls. He was born to a wealthy family. When he was a small child, an illness left him deaf and without speech. He showed an early talent for drawing, which encouraged his parents to pay for private lessons. In 1901, he began his formal studies at the Kraków Academy of Fine Arts, where he was a student of Józef Mehoffer, Jan Stanisławski, and Leon Wyczółkowski. He graduated in 1905 with a gold medal. Having been informed of the pogroms taking place in Odessa, he went there to document the events with a series of drawings. After that, he made a study trip through Germany and Austria, then went to Paris, where he got married and decided to settle permanently. In early November 1930, he went to Argentina to help prepare the first overseas exhibition of his paintings. Later that month, unable to hear the honking of an oncoming taxi, he was struck and killed.
