Hey McCoy,
You are in Krakow right?
Have you been to the poster gallery?
I bring my friends there when they are over, some excellent stuff there.

I am looking for the famous painting of the horses running towards you that used to be in the cloth gallery in Rynek Glowney but they moved it to Niepolomice, along with a lot of fine art paintings. Do you know the one and who is it by?

I still can't find the artist of the name of the painting with the horses.
But they are doing reconstruction work to the Sukinnice (clth market) in Krakow market square and they very cleverly put up barriers with the paintings on them.

So does anyone know this very famous painting?

Józef Chełmoński: "Czwórka"

Thanks, that's the one.

Again digital format does not do the painting justice but I hope at least it will spark an interest.
When you stand in front of this painting, you feel like you are going to get hit and there is no way to jump out of the way.

Oh, yeah, I spend quite a lot of time in the museum, sitting in front of the original and staring at it in amazement. Here, the size matters!

A great painting.

All these paintings and sculptures were moved to the castle in Niepolomice while the Sukinnice (Krakow) is being renovated.
The great thing about this move is that they are planning to leave certain works on permanent display in Niepolomice, that were previously unseeable in the basement in the Sukinnice in Krakow :)

Some wonderful works for sure.
Krakow is an open roof museum.

How did Krakow end up with a Leonardo Da Vinci?

from the Wiki:

The painting was acquired in Italy by Adam Jerzy Czartoryski, the son of Izabela Czartoryska and Adam Kazimierz Czartoryski in 1798 and incorporated into the Czartoryskis' family collections at Puławy in 1800. The inscription on the top-left hand corner of the painting, LA BELE FERIONIERE. LEONARD D'AWINCI., was probably added by a restorer shortly after its arrival in Poland,[4] and before the background was overpainted.[5] Czartoryski was clearly aware that it was a Leonardo, though the painting had not ever been discussed in print; unfortunately, there is no record of any previous owner.

To the victors the spoils

I can only imagine all the fine art that Poland lost during the various wars.

Can anyone show us some sculpture, please?.

How did Krakow end up with a Leonardo Da Vinci?

more or less:

In 1800 prince Adam Jerzy Czartoryski bought the painting and gave it as a present to his mother, Izabela Czartoryska. It was on display in the Gothic House in Puławy. During the November Uprising it was taken to Paris. In the end of the 19th cent., circa 1880 it was brought to Kraków to the Czartosyski Muzeum that was founded there. In 1939 the painting was stolen by the German occupants and it served as a decoration in the Wawel residence of Hans Frank, next, it was taken to Germany, from where, in 1946, it was again brought back to Kraków.

Jan Lenica and Jacek Yerka are two of my favorite Polish artists.

Lenica did mostly poster-art, for Theatre, Music Festivals and cinema:

Geez folks, some stunning stuff here. As a guy who sucks at art, I can really see how advanced these people are.

I like the lower one from McCoy's original post a lot.

Hi i noticed you put czworka on there i was wondering why that was on there and what it means?

A rough translation of 'Czwórka' is 'The four' as in the four horses pulling the carriage in the painting.
This word is no longer in use probably due to the advent of the automobile.
