Madrid: Wróblewski

November 17, 2015 - February 28, 2016

Andrzej Wróblewski
Recto / Verso

 

November 17, 2015 – February 28, 2016
/ Palacio de Velázquez. Parque del Retiro

 

Andrzej Wróblewski (1927–1957) is, despite his short life, one of the most important Polish artists of the 20th century.

Wróblewski was an artist that could work on the borders between abstraction and figuration, combining formal invention with the analysis of daily life and its limits – the degradation of war and dictatorial politics – by means of a profound human and political commitment.

The exhibition focuses on his double-sided paintings (painted on both sides: recto and verso), and presents mainly two different periods of his work: its beginnings at the end of the 1940s as he searched for his own painterly language, and the very end, when, disillusioned with the politics of real socialism, he attempted to redefine his work, both formally and thematically.
