Leon Wyczółkowski (1852-1936) was a leading figure in Poland’s modernist movement who dabbled in history painting, the Polish Realism movement, Impressioniam (after visiting Paris, of course), Orientalism and even Symbolism. This was all held together by a unique richness of form and complex technical means. He painted landscapes full of drama, kicksass nudes and pastoral scenes as well as still life.

Ten years after his death in Warsaw in 1936, the city of Bydgoszcz named their District Museum after him and in return his widow, donated over 700 of his paintings, drawings and a plethora Wyczółkowski memorabilia even studio equipment. His wife, Franciszką even donated equipment Wyczółkowski’s studio.
