I was going to comment on this painting, but then I remembered I still had the presentation of the artist on my SD Card – and anything else is quite unnecessary. Anyway, I’m kinda worried for Polish contemporary art.
Alfred Wierusz Kowalski, Attacking Wolfpack (1890). This exactly what commuting to work in winter when you live in Fribourg feels like. Note that today (November 21, 2015) is the first snowfall this year.
At noon : in the state, but not my district. (two hours later : yes, it’s snowing).
Władysław Jarocki, Self-portrait as a Skier (1909). The posture is kinda gay, but the clothing is on point. National Art Museum of Wrocław.
Saint John, detail from The Epitaph of Vincentius Partsch, Crucifixion, St. Elizabeth’s Church of Wrocław.
Saint Lawrence and Saint Stephen, from St. Matthias’ Church in Wrocław.
National Art Museum of Wrocław.
Biczowanie/Flagellation – fragment of a panel from the polyptych of the Virgin, St. Augustine and St Hedwig .Wrocław, Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Sand Isldand, circa 1486. National Art Museum of Wrocław.
Saint Dorothy and the Angel With Hammer & Nails sounds like the name of an indie band from Illinois with a mini-skirted/big-knees, fringed black hair mid-twenties singer and a bearded, plaid-shirt wearing, depressed homosexual keyboard player. Or some young-adult mystery novel’s title.
Anyway, both panels come from Saint Mary Magdalene’s Goldsmiths’ polyptich church in Wrocław and were made circa 1473.
Wojciech Fangor – Matka Koreanka (Głowa) – 1950. Art Museum of Wrocław
