Varsovian Printmaking Highlights

An exhibition called Interpretations: Varsovian Printmaking Traditions now showing at Warsaw's Królikarnia Gallery gives a taste of what we can expect from the first Tadeusz Kulisiewicz International Print Triennial coming up in November.

The exhibition chronicles the development of 20th-century printmaking and puts modern printmaking into a historical perspective through the works of the most celebrated artists associated with the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, which is organizing the triennial.

A hundred and eighty prints from artists such as Tadeusz Dominik, Jan Lebenstein and Jan Tarasin have been selected from the National Museum in Warsaw collection by exhibition curator Anna Grochala. Also featured are the works of Władysław Skoczylas (1883-1934) and his students. Skoczylas headed the graphics department at the Academy of Fine Arts and most of his students were active members of the Polish Graphic Artists' Association between 1925 and 1939.

The exhibition shows how these outstanding artists interpreted the world around them and how they recreated folk art, high culture, mythology, literature and religion through the medium of print. Etching, linoleum block printing, woodcut, stone engraving and lithography have all been deployed to depict the world and to resolve artistic, existential and philosophical dilemmas.
