Open 10:00-18:00. Closed Mon.
Rynek Główny 25
The exhibition is a comprehensive presentation of perfectly preserved graphic images of animals and plants from the collections of old prints of the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences. The presentation is addressed to both the traditional art gallery visitors, nature enthusiasts, and professional naturalists as well as people ecologically conscious. Although the basic purpose of the presented works was scientific use, nevertheless the high artistic quality of the graphics, the craftsmanship of engravers and printers as well as the extraordinary precision of execution, as well as the aesthetic stylization speak for recognition as autonomous works of art.
