17th Century Art on Show

Around 200 pieces of art from the 17th century including portraits, fine silverware, fabrics and a golden reliquary are on display at Warsaw's Wilanów Palace Museum.

The items come from the collection of Primate Michał Stefan Radziejowski (1645-1705), who was an art collector and connoisseur. The exhibition, running until Sept. 15, includes a portrait of Radziejowski painted by Jan Reisner about 1695-1700 and a gilded statue of Radziejowski weighing over 100 kilograms. The statue has been borrowed from the Holy Cross Church on Krakowskie Przedmie¶cie Street in Warsaw for the exhibition and restored by art conservators for the first time in nearly three centuries.

The Wilanów exhibition, entitled ¦więto Baroku (Feast of Baroque), also has three 360-year-old Brussels tapestries depicting Old Testament scenes from the Book of Genesis, and 17th-century liturgical vestments made in Paris.
