Anatol Gurewitsch was a Russian Jewish painter and stage designer, born in 1916 in Moscow. He also was the uncle of Igael Tumarkin, and father of the theatre director Miki Gurewitsch. After the Russian revolution he fled to Berlin, where he studied at the Schule Reimann, a private art school. In 1934 he immigrated to Palestine, where he painted and designed stage decoration, and costumes for the theater. He studied under Yitzchak Frenkel, and one year later under Miron Sima in Jerusalem. After World War II he worked as a stage designer, designing costumes for Gertrud Kraus, an Israeli pioneer of expressionistic modern dance. Anatol Gurewitsch died in 2005.
