Doing a post on Gustav Klimt reminded me of another painter, whose work I adore.
Stanisław Wyspiański was a Polish playwright, painter and poet, as well as interior and furniture designer of the second half of the 19th and the first decade of the 20th century.
He was one of the most outstanding and multifaceted artists of his time in Europe, a modernist who used themes of Polish folklore and Romantic tradition in his works.
I find his painting quite intimate and very touching, especially those portraying motherhood and children.
This common theme is probably why I see a connection between Wyspiański and Klimt.
By the way, if you’d like to tackle the pronunciation of his name, here is the phonetic spelling [staˈɲiswaf vɨˈspjaɲskʲi]
Just so you know, my first name and surname – soooo much more difficult to pronounce.
My name is a real tongue twister!
You can just call me PinUp, Iwanttobeapinup, or Agzy 🙂
