The ‘Master of the Line’ from Kalisz, a sensitive humanist, a careful observer of his native land or a participant in distant artistic journeys — the figure of Tadeusz Kulisiewicz is undoubtedly linked to a multitude of contexts and stages of creative evolution, which is why the exhibition Kulisiewicz: Succinct Beauty is the story of how individual chapters of the artist’s life shaped his original and outstanding expressive language over the years.

The course of this multi-layered story takes the viewer into the world of woodcuts from the Szlembark series and pre-war drypoint prints, to then show the wealth of drawings created through many technical, stylistic and thematic explorations, transformations or experiments. All this to reveal to us the essence of the artist’s artistry — the iconic ‘Kulisiewicz line’.

    The Tadeusz Kulisiewicz monographic exhibition presents a unique selection of the artist’s works — drawings and prints — never before shown in one common space. The exhibition will feature works from galleries and museums such as the National Museum in Warsaw, the Asia-Pacific Museum and Zachęta — National Gallery of Art, but also from the Museum of the Polish Army and the Museum of Warsaw. A significant part of the exhibition will be works from the private collections of Leonard and Wanda Pietraszak, Jacek Kudelski, as well as Jacek Łozowski. An extensive selection of drawings, prints and sketches created throughout the artist’s life will be on display. There will also be works from the artist’s numerous travels to China, India, South America and Cuba.
