SALCIA BAHNC (November 14, 1896 - May 1, 1979).
Painter, illustrator, printmaker, teacher. Born in Dukla, Poland. Though she was born in Dukla, a town in south-eastern Poland, she moved to Prsemysl, one of the largest and most ancient cities of southern Poland, at a young age. Her mother was reportedly descended from the "Van Ast" family, a Dutch dynasty that produced several artists, including Balthasar van der Ast (1593/4 - 1657).
