The National Museum in Warsaw was Nov. 6 officially presented with works produced by Jan Stanisławski (1860-1907) and Piotr Michałowski (1800-1855). Thanks to sponsorship provided this year by refining and petrochemical industry giant PKN Orlen, the museum's Polish Painting Gallery has modern air humidity control equipment, new glass covers for pastels, drawings and graphic works, and an up-to-date art conservation lighting system.

"Restoring masterpieces of Polish painting to their former glory" is the name of a National Museum project aiming to protect works that are part of the museum's Polish Painting Gallery. Thanks to PKN Orlen's support, the gallery has acquired Stanisławski's landscape Wisła pod Tyńcem (The Vistula River Near Tyniec) and Michałowski's Portret mężczyzny (Portrait of a Man), which complement the gallery's collections of works by the two artists.

The project focuses on protecting works in the gallery that belong to the canon of Polish art.

PKN Orlen has sponsored the National Museum in Warsaw since 2003. Up to now, the company has provided funds for upgrading the museum's security system. The money has been used for modern fire protection systems, anti-theft systems, CCTV monitoring and controlled access to exhibition rooms.
