The Artist - Józef Chełmoński (1849-1914):
One of the most outstanding Polish painters of the realist school. Chełmoński came from a Mazowsze nobleman’s family and was brought up in the family estate in Boczki. Between 1867 and 1872, he studied in Warsaw Drawing Class and took private lessons from Wojciech Gerson; between 1872 and 1875, Chełmoński was a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. In 1875, he set off to Paris where he became popular due to the original subject matter of his paintings. As an illustrator, he worked for the Parisian “Le Monde Illustré.” Chełmoński returned to Poland together with his family in 1887 and in 1889 bought a manor house in Kuklówka, where he settled and lived until his death. He painted genre scenes, showing the life of the Polish and Ukrainian villagers with significant authenticity, as well as hunting scenes. In his realistic and atmospheric landscapes, Chełmoński rendered the colours of nature with great sensitivity. He was an excellent painter of horses and is famous for his depictions of “Four-in-Hand” and “Three-in-Hand” caught at full speed.
The Artwork - Saturday on a Farm
The painting was made at the time when Chełmoński took lessons from Wojciech Gerson. It presents a realistic genre scene that takes place in front of a modest manor house. The owner of the manor house is standing on a threshold in an affluent attire, with a cloak on his arm. On the right hand-side, next to the horses, there are well-dressed men, probably the managers of the farm. The other people in the painting are peasants waiting for their pay, depicted with utmost detail.
