Inspired by Japan

More than 200 works by Wojciech Weiss (1875-1950), one of the greatest painters of the Young Poland period, are on show at the National Museum in Wrocław.

Weiss was greatly inspired by Japanese art and avidly collected it. He was a member of the expressionist movement of the 1920s and '30s, which was influenced by Japanese esthetics.

Weiss transposed the rules of spatial composition from Japanese wood engravings into his own work, and his understanding of Japanese art enabled him to create a series of landscapes with bridges and railway tracks unique in European art.

The exhibition features oil paintings, pastels, drawings as well as the artist's personal collection of Japanese art and objects.

National Museum, 5 Powstańców Warszawy Sq., Wrocław, until March 15
