The National Museum in Warsaw from the end of August until Sept. 21 is exhibiting a collection of graphics and drawings, known as the Sucha Collection, which used to belong to Poland's Branicki and Tarnowski aristocratic families.

In 2006, the National Museum agreed to purchase the contents of the Sucha manor house library from the heirs of Juliusz and Róża Tarnowski. With financial support from the Ministry for Culture and National Heritage, the museum acquired 9,213 items: 1,148 drawings, 7,960 illustrations and photographs, five oil paintings, two manuscripts, an old print, and 97 maps and atlases.

The collection includes works by outstanding artists such as Bernardo Bellotto, better known as Canaletto; Tadeusz Brodowski; Stanisław Chlebowski; Szymon Czechowicz; Cyprian Kamil Norwid. Moreover, there are interesting works by amateur artists, including drawings by Maria Wirtemberska and hundreds of examples of 16th-19th century works such as portraits, city views, drawings of archeological digs and religious, heraldic and ethnographic illustrations.

You can see the exhibition in Warsaw's National Museum at no. 3 Jerozolimskie Avenue until Sept. 21. Tickets cost zl.17.

Museum open Tue.-Fri. 10 a.m.-4 p.m., weekends 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
