The National Museum in Warsaw is holding an exhibition entitled My Life to mark the 80th anniversary of the death of Jacek Malczewski (1854-1929), one of Poland's greatest painters.

Malczewski was the founder and chief exponent of Polish symbolism, a school of painting that flourished at the turn of the last century. The National Museum has 20 of Malczewski's most significant oil paintings on permanent display in its Polish Art Gallery. It also has 130 of his paintings and oil sketches, nine of his sketch books, and around 1,000 of his water colors and pencil, ink and chalk drawings.

The pieces in the new exhibition have been selected from the museum's collection. Some 120 of Malczewski's paintings and oil sketches, and 200 of his drawings and water colors, are on show in sections called Childhood Memories, comprising early works; Homage to Art and the Muse, symbolic works from the artist's mature period; and Empty Manor, the first exposition of some rare, late works with a metaphysical slant.
