The article concentrates on the understanding of "parergon" proposed by Jacques Derrida. Derrida discusses the definition of "parergon" proposed by Immanuel Kant as a decorative element. For Derrida "parergon" is an element which is "in between" the artwork and its surroundings, and therefore contributes to the onthology of an artwork. In the article the problem of "parergon", the margins and spaces "in between" is analyzed referring to different types of artworks - the works of Jan van Eyck, Rembrandt Hamenszoon van Rijn, Jan Gossaert and contemporary Polish artists - Maciej Kurak, Jan Berdyszak and Kamil Kuskowski.
