Having returned to Poland, Henryk Hochman temporarily stayed in Kraków and then moved to Tarnów. During the Nazi occupation, he was deported to the Bochnia ghetto and was shot by the Germans in 1943. Portraits were his favourite type of sculptures; Hochman portrayed, e.g., Julian Fałat and Olga Boznańska. The sculpture from the collection of the Museum in Tarnów presents the portrait study of an unknown young woman with classical facial features who is supporting her long loosened hair with her right hand, while tilting her head to the left.
