Like Father Like Son

Many art lovers are familiar with the work of Jacek Malczewski (1854-1929), a major figure in Polish symbolism at the turn of the 20th century. His monumental paintings and numerous self-portraits are on display at a number of museums. The latest exhibition at the Regional Culture Center in Kołobrzeg shows a less well known side of Malczewski, highlighting sketches by him and his son Rafał Malczewski (1892-1965), a painter and graphic artist like his father.

Visitors to the exhibition can see sketches of people, including friends and members of Malczewski's family, as well as portraits and landscape studies. The works on display form an intimate diary of an artist who used the elusive form of a sketch to take notes on the world around him. Some of the works are unclear and faded due to the passing of time and possibly because of inappropriate storage.

Gallery of the Regional Culture Center, Kołobrzeg, 13 Ratuszowa St.,
open through Oct. 4
