Designed to commemorate the centenary of Poland regaining independence in 1918, this exhibition will present works by Jacek Malczewski, Zofia Stryjeńska, Tadeusz Makowski, Witold Wojtkiewicz, and many other artists living both on Polish territory and elsewhere. On display, the main actors in the war and struggle for Poland’s independence have been immortalized in paintings and portraits by Wojciech Kossak, Stanisław Fabijański, Władysław Wankie, Leopold Gottlieb and Henryk Weyssenhoff. A separate part of the exhibition will be devoted to the Polish-Soviet war and its image in art and propaganda. The story of Polish Legions, the figure of Józef Piłsudski as well as battle scene motifs will be strongly highlighted here. The exhibition will culminate with the foundation of the Sejm. Several hundred paintings, sculptures and prints will be accompanied by numerous ephemera and photographs.
