Vilnius, Vilnius, Vilne 1918-1948: One City – Many Stories


The exhibition titled “Vilnius, Vilnius, Vilne 1918-1948: One City – Many Stories” shows Vilnius during an exceptionally complicated historical period. 

The seven-part narrative of the exhibition shows how artists of the then multicultural Vilnius perceived their city. The display presents works by Vilnius artists stored in Polish and Lithuanian cultural heritage institutions. In addition to the well-known and oft-presented works of the classics of Vilnius art, including Ferdynand Ruszczyc, Jan Bułhak, Ludomir Sleńdzinski, Bronisław Jamontt, Michał Rouba, Jerzy Hoppen, one can also see paintings and prints by the younger generation of artists, which included Hanna Milewska, Józef Horyd and Hadassa Gurewicz-Grodzka. 

The depiction of Vilnius has been expanded to include a Lithuanian chapter, consisting of landscapes and portraits by Vladas Drėma, Antanas Gudaitis, Juozas Mikėnas, Algirdas Petrulis and Adomas Varnas. 

The narrative culminates with works born of nostalgia for lost Vilnius, including prints and paintings by Andrzej Wroblewski.

Exhibition open May 24 to September 3, 2023.
