Medieval Art Gallery Reopens

The National Museum in Warsaw is reopening its Gallery of Medieval Art Dec. 11 after a makeover.

The gallery houses some of the museum’s most extensive and diversified art collections. The makeover was designed to provide a more attractive setting to exhibits such as Beautiful Madonna from Wrocław, The Polyptych of Grudzi±dz, and a monumental altarpiece from the town of Pruszcz Gdański. The gallery’s new design is the work of the WWAA architecture studio in Warsaw.

Most of the exhibits at the gallery date back to the late Middle Ages (14th-16th centuries) and come from different parts of present-day Poland. There are also several items from Western Europe. The exhibition’s new layout is designed to help visitors better understand the interplay of art and religion in the Middle Ages. Items on show include impressive altarpieces, miniature altars, and paintings and sculptures that used to adorn churches.

The gallery aims to offer a comprehensive picture of medieval art, from painting to sculpture and handicrafts.

The reopening will be combined with a string of events, including early music concerts and lectures delivered by leading experts on the medieval era.
