Seals and seal matrices are two closely related concepts; the former is a sign (either graphic or in the form of an inscription) representing an individual or institution and indicating individual property, while a seal matrix is the object with which this sign is created and repeated. We commonly call a seal any kind of stamped or embossed sign, regardless of the material it is made of.
Watercolours allow for very little possibility of retouching of correcting the image created. Painting in this medium involves the application of thin, nearly transparent layers of paint to the paper, through which the substrate is visible. The technique requires precision and accuracy. Once painted, a given fragment can only be very slightly modified by the application of further layers or by the removal of some of the pigment.
The exhibition consists of manuscripts, old prints and maps kept in the Czartoryski Princes Library. Among the presented materials relating to European monarchs, there were documents related to the dynasties ruling in Poland, as well as graphic representations of the rulers.
The exhibition “Centuries of rappresentazioni musicali in the collections of the Princes Czartoryski Library” is focused on opera, a genre of music which has from the outset combined several artistic forms including words, music, images, and dance.
The Graphic Arts Room of the Princes Czartoryski Museum presents a new set of etchings from its collections. These portraits and illustrations of various events and ceremonies are associated with the reign of the elected kings of Poland, the Wettin dynasty. The works presented were created byoutstanding artists of the 17th and 18th centuries, including Dutch, Italian, and Germain artists, including from the Augsburg school.
