The Regional Museum in Stalowa Wola, southeastern Poland, is staging Records of Changes, an exhibition of 105 works including oils, sculptures and drawings from the private collection of music lover and arts patron Krzysztof Musiał. He says that his collection, comprising over 700 pieces, aims to "reflect the history of Polish arts from wyspiański and his contemporaries to this day."

The exhibition has a number of little known 19th-century masterpieces by Wojciech Gerson and Henryk Siemiradzki, and a collection linked to the Młoda Polska (Young Poland) period (about 1890-1918), including works by Leon Wyczółkowski, Julian Fałat, Jan Stanisławski and a considerable number of Olga Boznańska's works.

The museum in general, and the present exhibition in particular, give a special place to the art of the interwar period, with works by Eugeniusz Zak, Maurycy Gottlieb, Mela Muter, Joachim Weingart, avant-garde compositions by Władysław Strzemiński, Henryk Stażewski, Józef Czapski, and a small but interesting collection of sculptures by Bolesław Biegas, Ksawery dunikowski and Alina Szapocznikow.

The collection of Polish art after 1945 includes works by Jerzy Nowosielski, teresa P±gowska and Leon tarasewicz.
