Title variants
Material Art Historiography. Tadeusz Mańkowski’s Galerja Stanisława Augusta of 1932
Languages of publication
This article presents an analysis of Tadeusz Mańkowski’s book Galerja Stanisława Augusta as a material object. By focusing on such aspects of the book as the expensive in quarto format, the paper, the photographic illustrations, the leather binding, the supralibros with the King’s coat of arms and the bookplate with his signature, as well as on the history of its creation, distribution and popularisation, it considers it as a milestone in Polish art history. Arguably, the edition of the historical inventories of the royal collection of paintings, dismembered after 1795, is modelled on the most prestigious European examples of the Old Masters scholarship: Wilhelm von Bode’s and Cornelis Hofstede de Groot’s monumental Rembrandt’s multivolume in folio catalogue (1897-1907) and August Jaccaci’s and John La Farge’s Noteworthy Paintings in American Collections (the first and only volume issued in 1909).
