The Ziemi Lubuskiej museum in Zielona Góra is showing an exhibition of the work of Leon Wyczółkowski, one of the greatest Polish artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The exhibition is subdivided both thematically and chronologically and shows the artist's paintings, drawings and graphic works. They were selected from the collection of the District Museum in Bydgoszcz, which holds a large number of Wyczółkowski's works.

The display traces Wyczółkowski's artistic trajectory and the wealth of techniques he used. His portraits were often profound psychological studies, and his other subjects included mountain landscapes, genre scenes, and a strong fascination for flowers and the architecture of Polish towns.

A major influence on his work was his near-decade-long stay in Ukraine, where he painted in the impressionist style. Some of the most famous paintings of this period are scenes showing manual labor: beetroot harvests, plowing and fishing. In time, oil gave way to watercolor, pastels and etching, which became his preferred techniques. He experimented for over 30 years with various techniques from aquatint through algraphy to lithography.
