Contemporary Models of Realism

The term ‘realism’ appeared in the second half of the 19th century. Nevertheless, the phenomenon of realistic representation applies throughout art history. In the popular perception, ‘good art’ is a faithful representation of reality. This is not, however, what artists consider the most important. They engage in a dialogue with realistic images using their tangibility as raw material to build their concepts. The catalogue that accompanies the exhibition comprises among others, texts by Maria Poprzęcka and Maria Anna Potocka as well as a wealth of illustrations.
