This one's by Edward Okun (1872-1945), one of my favourites.
I really like this painting, very Art Nouveau (I like this period in art) :)
who he caught and detained.
That's cool - props to him! I think we were thaught about it at highschool...
Jon357, what is the technique that Robert Olszowski's piece is painted with?
Btw, Stanisław Masłowski's father took part in the January Uprising as the head of the Chęciny district - he was arrested for that in 1864 and he spent six months in prison in Kielce.
I quite like some of the still life by a contemporary artist Edward Szutter (there's some painting process included in that link):
A lot of it is quite kitschy, but I must admit that I even like kitsch when it's well done :) And his paintings are very well done - he has a very good traditional painting technique and his pieces are pleasant to look at.
