Over the last few months, we have been writing mostly about young artists, international exhibitions, and art fairs. Now, is a time to present the “classics”— the artists that are already known and are part of the international art scene.
Let’s have a closer look at the work of Tadeusz Brzozowski – A painter, graphic artist, illustrator, teacher, and textile designer.
To prepare the video story we got inspired by a truly amazing exhibition entitled “Tadeusz Brzozowski: Inspirations, Contexts, Motives” that we saw at the National Museum in Wroclaw – The Four Dome Pavilion.
Tadeusz Brzozowski (1918-1987)
The artist began to study art at the Krakow’s Academy of Fine Arts in 1936 and continued during the World War II occupation of Poland at the Kunstgewerbeschule (1940-42). A teacher at the Krakow Polytechnic Institute (1945-54), the Visual Arts College in Zakopane (1954-69), Poznań’s State Higher School of Visual Arts (1962-79), and the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow (1979-81). He was a member of the Krakow Group, and also a member of the international group known as Phases.
He has received international success since the 1950s, with works in the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. He took part in the exhibition at ROSC 1967 in Dublin.
