One Response to “RAQUEL PARTNOY ART”


  1. Raquel. I don’t know if we ever got to meet, but I married Matilde Raquel (Wajnerman-Jacobs/Wajnerman) Holte in 2000, and she used to always talk about you. I was always hoping one day we could all get together, or at least visit one of your exibits but she got very sick and passed away in September this last year and I just wanted you to know just how much she loved you and your art and how much it has moved me too. Please contact me if you can at chris_holte@yahoo.com.
