The National Museum in Wroc³aw in Lower Silesia province is displaying over 150 works by a prominent painter linked to Wroc³aw, Alfons mazurkiewicz (1922-1957). The exhibition reviews the artist's work from his academic studies to art produced towards the end of his life.

Mazurkiewicz was born in Düsseldorf in Germany into a family of Polish emigrants. He enrolled at the State Higher School of Visual Arts (PWSSP) in Wroc³aw in 1946, at first in the department of ceramics and glass and later in the painting department.
His early works mainly include post-impressionistic landscapes, still life and portraits. A series created 1954-1957 includes oil paintings and ink drawings inspired by proverbs and fables, stylistically referring to the hyperrealism of Paul Klee and Joan Miró.
