The Boris Voznitsky Lviv National Art Gallery in Lviv holds an extraordinary collection of works by Stanisław Wyspiański, including four pastel portraits from the years 1893–1894 as well as sixty four loose sketches and drawing studies.
Portrait of Two Girls and Study of a Boy’s Head were donated to the Municipal Gallery by Bolesław Orzechowicz from Kalników in 1905, while Portrait of a Girl with a Camomile was a donation by Michał Toepfer made in 1907. Also, the pastel work Lady in a Lilac Dress was purchased by the Society of Friends of Sciences in Vilnius.
Wyspiański’s drawings in the Lviv collection are sketches, among others from the period when the artist worked on the painted decoration of St Mary’s Basilica in Krakow in 1889, and from his first artistic journey across Europe in 1890, as well as drawings documenting Wyspiański’s military service in Krakow in November 1890, sketches from Paris of 1891, and caricatures of historical events in 1900. Wyspiański sold these works to the Municipal Gallery in Lviv in 1906.
The exhibition of the Lviv collection is yet another display of Wyspiański’s works at the National Museum in Krakow. Previous shows enjoyed immense popularity – since 2017, they have been visited by more than 250,000 visitors.
The exhibition of the Lviv works has been prepared in collaboration with the Boris Voznitsky Lviv National Art Gallery in Lviv.
