Opening of the exhibition ‘Wróblewski and After… Art of Direct Realism’


‘It is a great tribute to the artist, many thanks to the organisers of the exhibition. It is very satisfying that we can support such activities’, stressed the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Culture and National Heritage, Prof Piotr Glinski, during the opening of the exhibition.

This is the first exhibition of works by Andrzej Wróblewski at the National Museum in Lublin, whose collection includes two works by the artist: Painting About the Horrors of War, (Headless
and Woman. The artworks included in the exhibition – created between 1948 and 1957 – executed in a variety of techniques, from oil paintings to monotypes or ink works – reflect the wide range of interests of the artist, who, according to the exhibition’s curator, Prof Marcin Lachowski, was ‘a separate, complete artist who occupied the position of outsider’.

‘What Andrzej Wróblewski painted many years ago is still relevant’, were the words used by Dr Katarzyna Mieczkowska, Director of the National Museum in Lublin, to open the exhibition.

Exhibition open from April 28 to August 27, 2023.
