The work of art which begins our series of discussions on The Senses of Art Formerly and Today is a painting from the Wilanów collection, a portrait which dates from 1685-1687, “Jan III Sobieski with his Son Jakub”, by Jerzy Eleuter Siemiginowski (Szymonowicz), and the interview with an outstanding painter, Franciszek Maśluszczak.

The motif of each film in the series “Senses of Art Formerly and Today” is a work of art from the collection of the Wilanów Palace Museum: a picture, a sculpture, a fabric, a graphic, a piece of furniture, glass, china, a weapon, a costume or a literary work. The first part of each film presentation introduces an outline of the history, the author’s profile and the creative technique. The second part is an interview with a chosen artist, which brings us closer to how the works emerge, shows the techniques, inspirations, the need to create, and analogies to ancient art and the item chosen from the Wilanów collection.

The producer of the series is The Wilanów Palace Museum. Enjoy the film!
