TO THE TATRAS I WILL RETURN ... FROM SPAIN TO ZAKOPANE. THE LIVES AND WORKS OF MARIAN AND JADWIGA MAURIZIO.

 

This exhibition is about the lives and works of Marian Maurizio Abramowicz (1905 - 1996) - climber, writer, poet and photographer, an agricultural engineer by profession and an émigré by fate – and his wife, the distinguished translator of Polish literature into Spanish, Jadwiga Maurizio (1910 -?). Their passions and achievements would undoubtedly be ripe material for a screenplay. The life stories of this extremely interesting, yet virtually unknown, couple are a reflection of the times in which they lived and the places they remained bound to. Marian was born in Lwów and brought up in Zakopane, a place that was dear to his heart, though by choice he was a Krakow resident. Most of his life was spent in Spain, which became his second homeland. The couple were true soulmates, and their loving relationship lasted for more than sixty years. Always full of energy, they loved the freedom and beauty of the culture and nature both in Poland and in Spain.


  

“CHILDHOOD AT THE FOOT OF THE TATRA MOUNTAINS” – TEMPORARY EXHIBITION

 

17th May – 2nd November
 
The Gallery of Art in Koziniec
(branch of the Tatra Museum)
Zakopane, Droga na Koziniec 8
 

This exhibition is an attempt to sketch a picture of childhood in the traditional culture of the rural Polish Tatras from the late nineteenth century to the first years after the Second World War. It is often an uneasy image of childhood, marked by poverty - but not devoid of warmth, joyful experiences and dreams. Regardless of the individual features and unique history, childhood determined the nature of the traditional family. The environment of this region influenced this, specifying the type of economic activities and the particularly difficult living conditions.

PICKING THE RIGHT PIPE: THE FASHION FOR PIPE-SMOKING IN THE PODHALE REGION

 

October 12 – December 31, 2013
 
The Museum of the Zakopane Style at Koliba villa
Zakopane, ul. Kościeliska 18
 
Smoking tobacco was very popular among Tatra Highlanders in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Many centres of fashioning metal-plated clay pipes existed in the Podhale region. These pipes were also sold in the neighbouring Spisz and Orava regions and in the villages of the nearby Gorce mountains. The aim of the exhibition is to evoke this craft, which once thrived in Podhale. The exhibition will showcase the various types of highlander pipes from the years 1880 - 1969 and a variety of ornaments, pipe pins, leather pouches for tobacco, tools for cutting snuff. Also a workshop for fashioning pipes from 1888 will be on display along with a set of moulds and tools. Archive photographs and quotes from 19th century texts in which a Tatra Highlander was almost always presented with an ever-present pipe will complement the exhibition.
 

  

JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY: AMONG THE IDEAS OF THE TATRA MOUNTAINS AND ZAKOPANE

The Gallery of Art in Koziniec

open: Wednesday - Saturday 10:00 - 17:00, Sunday 10:00 - 16:00
 
In this exhibition entitled “Journey of Discovery: Among the ideas of the Tatra Mountains and Zakopane”, we invite you for a walk through space and time along the cultural path designed by Stanisław Witkiewicz in his book “Na przełęczy. Wrażenia i obrazy z Tatr” [ “On the pass. Impressions and images from the Tatra Mountains”]. This book, published in 1891 in Warsaw, is sometimes called the gospel of the Tatra Mountains, and has played a major role in the creation and popularisation of an important phenomenon in Polish culture – the ‘discovery’ of the Tatra Mountains and Zakopane.

  

ALPINE BEAUTIES. MAGAZINE COVERS 1880-1940

MOUNTAINS ON PHOTOCHROM PRINTS 1890-1910

 

June 15 – October 13, 2013
 
The Gallery of 20th Century Art at Oksza villa,
Zakopane, ul. Zamoyskiego 25
 
The exhibition presents the main alpine resort towns of Europe and elsewhere, highlighting the "visual conquest" of the world in which the Photoglob company brought about the mass production of photochrom prints in just two decades (1890-1910). Even before the true colour photographic process (Autochrome) was widely used at the industrial level, the Swiss company was able to identify the common "need for colour" in the market, developing the Photochrom process: ink-based images produced through "the direct photographic transfer of an original negative onto litho and chromographic printing plates” that look deceptively like colour photographs, and were sold just as true colour photographs at tourist sites reached by middle-class travelers thanks to the new infrastructure, media and transport which made it easier to travel the length and breadth of Europe and across the world’s oceans.

  

BELLES IN ALPINE LANDSCAPES. ARTISTIC NUDES

The Museum of the Zakopane Style at Koliba villa
Zakopane, ul. Kościeliska 18
 
This small exhibition presents the work of two photographers remembered for their outdoor nude studies: Georges Louis Arlaud (1869-1944), a photographer from Geneva, remembered for the series that he took in the South of France that were printed as photogravures in "Vingt Études de Nu en Plein Air" (Paris, Horos Editions, 1920) and Marcel Meys (1885-1972), a Parisian painter, known for his nude and autochromes as well, who took female figures inhabiting the natural landscape with their own nude body. Two examples of Pictorialism's emphasis on nature and the nude often found expression in the fusion of both, with the image of a nude female figure in an idyllic natural setting.
