Bronka Weintraub (1905?-2001) was married to Jacob D. Weintraub, a collector and dealer of German Expressionist art, and owner of the Weintraub Gallery in Manhattan. Her husband was a Holocaust survivor and published the 1994 book, "Jacob’s Ladder: From the Bottom of the Warsaw Ghetto to the Top of New York’s Art World." The Weintraubs were major philanthropists to Jewish and Israeli medical institutions. Both had their portraits painted by Warhol in 1986.
