The Artist - Aleksander Gierymski (1850-1901):
A Polish painter, a representative of realism and impressionism. In 1867, he commenced his education at the Warsaw Drawing Class and then he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, from which he graduated with a gold medal. From 1873 to 1874, he stayed in Italy, where he started working on his most famous impressionist painting In the Arbour, which he finished after his return to Poland. The most excellent period of Gierymski’s activity was in the years 1879-1888, which he spent in Warsaw. The paintings created at that time, such as Jewess with Oranges, The Old Town Gate or Trumpets, present scenes from the life of poor people. In 1888, he left Warsaw and settled in Germany and subsequently in France, where he painted mainly landscapes. Gierymski spent the last years of his life in Italy; this period is represented by such paintings as Interior of Basilica of San Marco in Venice, or views of Verona. He died in Rome in 1901.
The Artwork- In the Arbour
The painting was created in the years 1875-1882; the artist began working on it during his stay in Italy and completed work in Warsaw, creating a few smaller works – fragments of the final work – in the course of the process. In the Arbour was exhibited in 1882 and won the first award at the contest exhibition; Gierymski was included among the recognized members of the Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts.
