Artist Frank Stella’s abstract synagogues on display in Poland

The works are from his Polish Village series produced in the 1970s. He  embarked on that project after he was inspired by a 1959 book by Polish architects Maria and Kazimierz Piechotka entitled “Wooden Synagogues.” The exhibition also features photographs of the synagogues by Szymon Zajczyk, a Jewish photographer and art historian who was killed in the Holocaust.
