Polish painting at the dawn of the 20th century transports the beholder to a world of myths and legends, dreamlike landscapes, ancient traditions and customs, and the depths of the human soul. In a nation without sovereignty – until its independence in Protected content , Poland had been partitioned between Prussia, as well as the Russian and the Austro-Hungarian Empires – a young generation of artists responded to the clarion call of a ‘silent rebellion’. Their mission was nothing less than breathing new life into the art of painting. With their works, they created what was lacking in the political arena: a common identity. They drew inspiration from their own Polish history, culture and natural environment, as well as from the art circles of Munich, Paris, St. Petersburg and Vienna.

For the first time in Germany, the Kunsthalle München presents such a comprehensive exhibition devoted to the flowering of Polish art between Protected content 1918, comprising Protected content works from public and private collections.

The exhibition was initiated by the Kunsthalle München and is co-organised with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, the National Museum in Warsaw, the National Museum in Kraków and the National Museum in Poznań.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Best wishes,
