Feliks "Manggha" Jasieński and His Collection at the National Museum in Krakow

Author: Agnieszka Kluczewska-Wójcik

This Polish-English publication, fully illustrated with reproductions of the works and archival photographs, is the first of nine volumes of the "Corpus of Feliks Jasieński’s Donation".

In 1920 Feliks Jasieński donated his collection to the National Museum in Krakow. The 15,000 objects it comprises include true masterpieces, among them Szał (Ecstasy) by Władysław Podkowiński, Stańczyk by Leon Wyczółkowski,  Łabędzie w nocy (Swans at Night) by Józef Pankiewicz,  Krajobraz znad Wisły  (Landscape from the Banks of the Vistula) by Jacek Malczewski,  Ze spaceru (Town Buildings) by Olga Boznańska, and  Portret artysty z żoną (Portrait of the Artist and His Wife) by Stanisław Wyspiański.

The collection of prints, in addition to works by Piranesi, Goya, Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin and Munch, also includes pieces by proponents of the Polish artistic print revival. The collections of Japanese art, including woodblock prints by Hokusai and Hiroshige, took the MNK into the top ranks of public collections in Europe.
The first part of this monograph is given over to a biography of Jasieński and his links with Berlin and Paris. The second sketches a colourful profile of this “enfant terrible” of the Young Poland movement, friend of its artists and patron of this “new art”. The book is based on period correspondence and documents and contains a list of Jasieński’s publications and musical compositions.
