Private view: Thursday 15 March, 6 – 8pm
David Zwirner is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by Polish artist Andrzej Wróblewski (1927-1957) at the gallery’s 24 Grafton Street location in London. This will be the first solo presentation of his work in the United Kingdom.
Now considered a leading figure in postwar Polish art, Wróblewski’s short but prolific career encompassed painting, works on paper, and prints. Often drawing from Poland’s sociopolitical atmosphere in the wake of the Second World War, Wróblewski’s singular practice is characterized by a unique blend of figuration and abstraction. On view will be a group of key paintings and a wide-ranging selection of works on paper detailing recurring subjects throughout the artist’s oeuvre.
Andrzej Wróblewski was born in 1927 in Vilnius and died in 1957 in the Tatra Mountains. During his lifetime, Wróblewski was the subject of two solo exhibitions, one at the Polish Writer’s Union, Warsaw (1956), and the other at Po Prostu Salon, Warsaw (1956). His work was also included in numerous group exhibitions, most notably at the 1st Exhibition of Modern Art, Kraków’s Palace of Arts, Kraków (1949).
