| The Artist and his Context
The paintings of Polish artist Andrzej Wróblewski fit into the realist art of the 20th century in an incomparable way. His portraits of people are characterized by a somber and cool color palette. The political mood in Poland after World War II had a significant influence on the artist’s oeuvre. Throughout his life, Wróblewski moved on the fringes of society; contemporaries described him as a “painter of a tragic generation.” This publication explores how his work was contextualized in exhibitions and how his themes were interpreted. How is a myth created around an artistic personality whose oeuvre is so closely intertwined with his tragic biography?

Polish artist and author ANDRZEJ WRÓBLEWSKI (1927–1957) created a groundbreaking body of artistic work during the early phase of Soviet Realism. His artistic development ended early with his tragic death during a hike.
