King and His Pictures: Story With a Twist
September 16, 2009   
Article's tools:

The Royal Castle in Warsaw is hosting The Polish Connection, an exhibition by Antoni Malinowski, a Polish artist who has been living in London since 1980. The name of the exhibition, which runs until Sept. 20, comes from a showing held June 16 to Sept. 27 at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in Britain.

The exhibition focuses on Stanisław August Poniatowski, the last king of Poland. The Dulwich gallery houses paintings the Polish king ordered in 1790 as a launching pad for the National Gallery in Warsaw. Due to subsequent political events and the king's abdication, the collection never made its way to Poland and was donated to Dulwich College, giving rise to the Dulwich Gallery, the first public museum in Britain.

The exhibition at Warsaw's Royal Castle, where the pictures were originally supposed to end up, is a symbolic fulfillment of King Stanisław August Poniatowski's plans. The exhibition is on display at the Kubicki Arcade, which has been opened to the public after almost 178 years.
