Languages of publication
The Institute of Art at the Polish Academy of Sciences presented an exhibition entitled “The Swing Decade”, featuring selected works by Czesław Olszewski, a noted photographer documenting the modernistic buildings designed by the so-called Warsaw architectural school. The presented photographs, from an extensive collection in the Institute of Art at the Polish Academy of Sciences, constitute a valuable source of knowledge about Polish modernistic architecture prior to 1939. They include images of buildings which frequently are no longer extant and enable us to admire preserved objects such as the Pniewski Villa in Na Skarpe Avenue. “The Swing Decade” also recollected the photographer himself, who worked from the 1920s on and documented not only Warsaw architecture but also the historical monuments of Tarnów, Nieborów – Arkadia, and many others.
