In Black and White: 200 Years of Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts
Apr 26 - Sep 29 2019
Al. 3 Maja 1
Henri Matisse once said: “Drawing is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence.” This exhibition is a celebration of the art of drawing and simultaneously the 200th anniversary of the oldest Fine Arts Institution in Poland, the Jan Matejko Academy, which has produced so many incredible artists during the past two centuries. There will be close to 170 drawings on display. The choice of this particular art technique is not accidental - according to John Ruskin “Drawing is of more real importance to the human race than that of writing.” Drawing instruction is designed to hone perception and exact observation, which in turn leads to exact presentation. It is the starting point for painters, sculptors, graphic artists, designers and architects. Among the displayed drawings will be works of contemporary artists as well as those of the old masters.
Open 09:00-17:00. Closed Mon, Sat 10:00-18:00, Sun 10:00-16:00.Apr 262019
