Henryk Stażewski: Master of the Avant-Garde
   
Monochromatic and metallic reliefs by 20th-century Polish avant-garde artist Henryk Stażewski are among the works on display in an exhibition at a contemporary art gallery run by the Starak Family Foundation in Warsaw.

The exhibition, entitled Henryk Stażewski: Spectra Art Space Masters, features some of the artist’s foremost works from the post-World War II period.

Stażewski (1894-1988) was a pioneer of Poland’s classical avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s. He was a leading representative of the Constructivist movement and the co-founder of the Geometric Abstract art movement as well as a member of the Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square) group of abstract painters based in Paris.

The exhibition is part of a series focusing on the central figures of postwar Polish avant-garde art.
