This is how Andrzej Wajda wrote about Execution VI / Execution with a Gestapo Man:
“This painting by Andrzej Wróblewski has decided the course my life. When I saw it, I knew that what I would have liked to paint has already been painted and that I would never be able to paint it better than that.”
The National Museum in Kraków has hosted a vast multimedia exhibition devoted to the life and work of the director. The exhibition, Wajda, is based on numerous artefacts left by the artist: screenplays, sketches, drawings, notes made during the creative process, props and costumes, scenery designs, and documentation.
Thanks to such magnificent collection of materials, visitors have the opportunity to better understand the work of Andrzej Wajda. The exhibition opens with Andrzej Wróblewski’s Execution VI / Execution with a Gestapo Man, because the painter’s work had a huge impact on the director. Wajda was the originator of the first exhibition of Wróblewski’s works in 1956.
