Warsaw's Zachęta National Art Gallery has frequently shown well-known private and museum collections, including works from the Lviv Art Gallery and paintings by Józef Czapski from the Swiss collection of Richard Aeschlimann.

The latest exhibition at Zachęta features an assortment of works collected by Krzysztof Musiał over the past few years. This is one of the largest and most interesting private collections of Polish art, encompassing over 700 works from the mid-19th century to contemporary times. A wide selection of the works was shown last autumn at the Record of Changes exhibition at the National Museum in Wrocław and the Castle of the Pomeranian Dukes in Szczecin. After Warsaw, the collection will be taken to the National Museums in Cracow and Poznań.

The exhibit at Zachęta consists primarily of works from before World War II, but also more recent pieces including paintings by Józef Czapski from the 1950s and 1960s. The displayed works include paintings and sculptures by such great Polish artists as Olga Boznańska, Eugeniusz Eibisch, Wojciech Gerson, Wojciech Kossak, Józef Pankiewicz, Henryk Siemiradzki, Wojciech Weiss and Stanisław Wyspiański. The artists are part of the history of Polish art and their works display the characteristics of the major trends in modern art, such as Impressionism, Expressionism and Cubism.

Portrait, Landscape, Still Life. From Siemiradzki to Czapski

Open through Feb. 17. Zachęta National Art Gallery, 3 Małachowskiego Sq., 00-916 Warsaw, tel. 0 22-827-58-54.
