I like Zdzislaw Beksinski paintings. I visited his Gallery at the Castle Museum in Sanok, this summer. Amazing place.

We have a lot of paintings about history

Jan Matejko

Polish painter known for paintings of notable historical Polish political and military events. His most famous works include oil on canvas paintings like Battle of Grunwald, paintings of numerous other battles and court scenes, and a gallery of Polish kings. He is counted among the most famous Polish painters.

Wow! Those are really incredible. It's amazing when seemingly classic archtypal scenes have layers and layers of depth that you don't immediately see, which seems to be the case with him. I'll definitely have to learn more about him. :)

Those are always great, though I'd really like to see them up close, since they have so much detail that's lost over the internet, it looks like.

information about this artist

here you have whole gallery of his famous paintings

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Matejko's_Gallery

as to details, yes they are really important, because there is a lot of historical persons, and their face or actions showed on painting have meaning. So maybe I will give you one exaple of it (the easiest ;) to show)

The jester is the only person at a royal ball who is troubled by the news that the Russians have captured Smolensk. This event happened in 1514.

and this jester isnt casual one ... (folow link below)

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanczyk

so in other paintings most of characters have their interpretation, especially on pictures showing political events.

Wondeful video - definitely confirmed my guess that his work was highly intricate. Amazing range of color and textures there, and fitting music. It's pretty terrible to read about his last few years of life, but at least he had a long, accomplished career.

£UKASZ, thank you. What a beautiful art you supplied!
I'm so happy to see the deep imagination of the artist(s). The posters are absolutely stunning. So much talent. I think of all the times in the past (communist times), when so much talent was lost, not able to express themselves...

I have noticed that we talk here about Polish sousage or vodka and we have a lot of much more intereting things in Poland. The same as USA has much more interesting things to show than Bush or McDonald ;)))

as to communist times ... yes I agree we lost a lot of talents and time ...

A very good observation £ukasz. It's time to get sausage, vodka and bigos (great things nonetheless) out of western minds. It may take however another generation to do that. Poland is such a new kid on the block and the government is not helping. Promotions and good, positive advertisement could do wonders. Unfortunately, it is the opposite in the media. This is why you hear more about Bush or McDonald, instead of all the greatness that America is and still could be much more...

I agree. You can not forget about theatre or music, either. An experimental theatre company Teatr Ósmego Dnia from Poznan (I was lucky to see their spectacular open-life performance "Raport z Oblezonego Miasta" by Herbert in Sopot in 1986 or 87), avant-garde theatre Cricot 2 formed by Tadeusz Kantor (The Dead Class is one of the most famous plays) or Jerzy Grotowski's Teatr Laboratorium are just a few examples of well known Polish theatre companies.

Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Krzysztof Penderecki and Witold Lutoslawski are great composers of classical music

What a fantastic set of pictures :),not all to my taste I admit but all pretty stunning non the less.

What about Wojciech Kossak

Actualy the artist I came on this thread to mention :). I found a large book of his art in a second hand shop in my town in the UK,a Polish book (many turn up as we have a large '45 generation pop') that thankfully at the time I bought it also had a section in English(it still has that section,i mean I didnt speak any Polish at the time....) and found his story and his work most interesting, he actually served as a Uhlan in the Austro - Hungarian army and has such an eye for horses.

A few years ago I was lucky enough to see one of his very large battle scenes close up,and one not on public view while visiting a friend at the Armed forces Museum in Warsaw and have been hooked ever since. I also think his adverts for a certain still available brand of piwo are charming.
