Non-professional Artist from the Aleksander Jackowski Archive – Katarzyna Gawłowa and Marianna Wiśnios
Languages of publication
The text presents the outcome of the “Aleksander Jackowski research archive – folk artists and non-professional artists” project, financed by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage as part of the “Digital Culture” programme realised in 2020 by the Liber pro Arte Society under the supervision of Dr hab. Zbigniew Benedyktowicz, professor in the Institute of Art at the Polish Academy of Sciences. The author analyses documents connected with two amateur painters: Katarzyna Gawłowa (1896–1982) from Zielonki near Kraków, and Marianna Wiśnios (1909–1996) from the Kielce region. The works of both artists won the recognition of experts on folk art, enhanced numerous private collections, and are on show in several state galleries and museums, not solely ethnographic, both in Poland and abroad.
