August Zamoyski was a Polish sculptor, an author of stone compositions in simplified and geometrised form. His first works were influenced by French Cubism and Italian futurism. Later he developed his own, monumental style related to Classicism.  At the end of his life, Zamoyski created expressive religious works. The large-scale exhibition at the Adam Mickiewicz Museum of Literature presents Zamoyski's works which have been recently purchased to become part of the collections of the National Museum in Warsaw. It will not be a classic museum show though, but instead an intimate portrait of Zamoyski against a historical background - places he lived in, artists he befriended, and many fascinating personalities surrounding the sculptor. As part of the exhibition, a fragment of the artist's workshop will be reconstructed, with the artist's original tools on display, including hand-cut chisels.
