Description

The period between 1918 and 1939 is considered the golden age of graphic art in Poland. Although much of the work produced during this time was destroyed in the Second World War, an important group of prints was in Canada and thus escaped destruction. In Grafika Polska - Estampes Polonaises - Polish Prints, 1918-1939 the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences in Canada and the Polish Library have gathered together high-quality reproductions of 120 prints from the library's collection, bringing this previously unavailable work to art lovers outside Poland. Grafika Polska - Estampes Polonaises - Polish Prints, 1918-1939 offers a representative example of the art of forty well-known Polish graphic artists, who worked in a variety of media and on a variety of subjects. The medium, date, and size is given for each print, along with biographical notes on the artists. An in-depth article on graphic art in Poland between 1918 to 1939 illuminates the history of the movement and is complemented by bibliographies covering both the general subject and the individual artists. A trilingual publication (Polish, French, and English) Grafika Polska - Estampes Polonaises - Polish Prints, 1918-1939 provides a unique reference source for art historians and will be appreciated by all those interested in graphic art.
