Wajda School Screening: Wróblewski According to Wajda


CATALOGUE TEXT
In Wajda’s story, Andrzej Wróblewski is shown as one of the greatest painters of the 20th century and a man tragically marked by war. In the documentary Wróblewski według Wajdy / Wróblewski according to Wajda, realized by Andrzej Wajda in 2015, the director recalls Wróblewski as a painter and as a friend. He speaks of a man who faced the challenges of his time and searched for his own place. Wróblewski, seen with Wajda’s eyes, is a genius, who had to wait for recognition for a long time, but who hadn’t recognized his genius himself. Their paths crossed right after the war, when they both studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Kraków. The artist was born in Vilnius, studied at the faculty of painting and sculpture, and also history of art at the Jagiellonian University.
