Paintings reproductions - Władysław Podkowiński
Władysław Podkowiński pseud. Andrzej Ansgary (born on 4 February 1866 in Warsaw, died on 5 January 1895) is one of the first Polish representatives of Expressionism. He began his artistic education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, and spent several years in Paris learning the art of the intricate art of brushing. Although at the beginning of his artistic path he was close to impressionism, at the end of his life (probably as a result of traumatic experiences and an incurable illness) he became interested in symbolism and created within it until the end of his days.
Podkowiński also created for the most important illustrated magazines in Warsaw, he also illustrated books and calendars.
Extreme poverty and the constant financial problems in which the artist lived led to his premature death at the age of 29. He died of severe lung failure.
