Paintings reproductions - Stanisław Wyspiański
Stanisław Mateusz Ignacy Wyspiański (born 15 January 1869 in Kraków, died 28 November 1907) is a true Renaissance man - a Polish writer, painter, creator of modern Polish theatre - an artist with many faces. He studied at the Kraków School of Fine Arts and at the Jagiellonian University. He cooperated with Jan Matejko in performing polychromies in the St. Mary's Church in Cracow.
Creative features: great passion for portrait painting, masterful grasp of seemingly unimportant and elusive details, conciseness in conveying emotions and content, painting activity inseparably combined with rich literary creation.
Both Wyspianski lived only 38 years, his short life was filled with art. He also left a huge artistic inheritance. He created until his last days. When he no longer had the strength in his hands, he had the boards attached to them in order to stabilize them a little. He died of syphilis, the last resting place of the artist was Skalka.
The most important works: A girl in a folk costume, The boy with a flower, Portrait of a child, Landscape with a river, Farmhouse in Konary, A sleeping child on a pillow.
