Enjoy a guided tour of the exhibition "Leon Wyczółkowski on himself – self-portraits" on 19 January 2017 at 5.00 p. m.  in Granaries on the Brda River. Free admission.

Self-portraits played a major role in Leon Wyczółkowski's creative work. The artist painted his own face from the 1890s up until his death. They were the manifestation of the duality of the person-artist image, which was typical for Wyczółkowski's painting style. The painter made various transformations to his image in his self-portraits. The paintings, which possess a wide range of artistic depiction of form and composition, constitute the perfect psychological case study of the artist. As Wyczółkowski once said: "A self-portrait, a memory of me, mysticism. A self-portrait dabbled, and then painted. A net on the window looks like half a ghost behind the pane. A portrait is and is not, it is elusive. Unrealistically with nostrils. A memory: this man once was."
