Art Without Limits

This year marks 120 years since the birth of versatile Polish artist Stefan Norblin. The anniversary is being commemorated by the Wilanów Poster Museum in Warsaw with a retrospective exhibition reminding audiences of Norblin’s legacy and unusual life, which tragically ended in suicide. This is the first time so many of his works have been shown in Warsaw since World War II.

Though a little forgotten at present, Norblin, the great-grandson of Polish-French painter Jean-Pierre Norblin de la Gourdaine, was highly popular in his day. He was an accomplished painter, book illustrator, poster designer, interior designer—and an example that some artists have no limitations in terms of style and technique. He successfully designed theater sets, advertisements, book covers and painted murals. He also produced outstanding work commissioned by art connoisseurs in Poland, the United States and India. The exhibition in Warsaw comprises Norblin’s work from Polish and foreign art collections, including numerous posters, portraits of famous people, commercial graphics, designs of palace interiors and theater costumes.
