Franciszek Żmurko i jego “Pieśń wieczorna” – a New Book by Stefania Krzysztofowicz-Kozakowska

The book by Stefania Krzysztofowicz-Kozakowska is dedicated to one of the most popular Polish academic painters in  late 19th century and his monumental canvas Pieśń wieczorna [Evening song] painted in 1893.

Franciszek Żmurko, pupil of Jan Matejko and favourite of burgeois audiences, did not follow his master’s path. In the 20th century his romantic painting fell from grace – today we rediscover it and appreciate the artist’s perfect workshop, outstanding sense of colour and devotion to his own vision of art.
