Krzysztof Musiał's collection is undoubtedly one of the most valuable and diverse Polish private collections, one that is growing before our very eyes. When he began to develop an interest in the Polish art of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, he was surely unaware of how big and spectacular his art collection would become. The list of names and works are truly impressive: Michałowski, Matejko, Gerson, Wyczółkowski, Fałat, Ślewiński, Stanisławski, Boznańska, Wyspiański, Weiss, Makowski, Malczewski, Zak, Strzemiński, Stażewski, Czapski, Cybis, Nacht-Samborski, Potworowski, Brzozowski, Fangor, Wróblewski, Nowosielski, Lebenstein, and many others.

Colours of Change gathers 170 objects representing the oeuvre of many eminent artists of this collection, albeit not all of them. At the same time, in an aim to represent the collector’s signature taste, the show at the State Gallery of Art in Sopot deliberately preserves major sets of works by individual artists such as Boznańska, Fangor and Wróblewski. While designing this exhibition, the curator was searching for artistic motives which on one hand are permanent and recurring in many works by various artists, and on the other hand show a wealth of solutions, styles and emotions accompanying the creation of self-portraits, still-lives and figurative compositions. In his early adulthood, the future collector was probably more attracted to music than to visual arts. As he recalls, the first work he bought in the early 1980s for his then non-existent collection was a watercolour by Nikifor. There is no denying that the beginnings can be very modest, but your appetite is salivated by each bite you take. The audience will once again be able to enjoy Krzysztof Musiał's openness and willingness to share his collection with art lovers. This has for years been an undeniable virtue of one of the major contemporary Polish collectors.
