Languages of publication
Amateur painter, draughtsman, and sculptor, born in Drogobych. Fought in World War I, as a Russian POW sent to Siberia. Having returned to Poland, worked at “Galicja” refinery in Drogobych. In 1940, arrested by the NKVD and sentenced to 5 years in concentration camp. The circumstances of his death remain unknown. His most important works are two series of graphics showing his hometown: History of the Town of Drogobych – For the Glory of Motherland and Hope of the Drogobych Burghers (1933) and Urycz in Legends. 14 Miniatures (1938). Lachowicz created in his works a mythology of the town according to his own vision of the past. His art does not reach for the new, but returns to history to connect to the mystery of the bygone and the primeval. At this point, his and Schulz’s artistic paths converge.
