The Artist - Marcin Zaleski (1796-1877):
Polish painter, representative of neo-classicism, the most outstanding Polish veduta painter of the 19th century. He mainly painted views of Warsaw, but also Kraków, Vilnius and Kaunas. He was educated in Kraków and Warsaw. Initially, Zaleski worked at a theatre as a decorator and was involved in making copies of paintings. He presented his works for the first time in 1828, received a medal and a scholarship. In 1846, he became professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. He primarily painted city views, castles and church interiors. Zalewski also created several paintings related to the fighting in the November Rising (however, always bringing architecture to the foreground). Marcin Zaleski’s paintings (along with Canaletto’s works) were used to reconstruct Warsaw’s historical development which was damaged or destroyed during WWI.
The Artwork - View of the Łazienki Palace in Sommer
Approx. 1836-1838. The painting presents the view of the Palace on the Isle from the side of the Amphitheatre in the Royal Baths (Łazienki Królewskie) park in Warsaw. The Palace on the Isle was originally built as a Baroque pavilion of the Baths (Hippocrene) according to the design of Tylman van Gameren between 1683 and 1689 and acquired its present-day shape during the reconstruction carried out between 1772 and 1793 by Dominic Merlini for King Stanislaus August Poniatowski.
The palace complex is located on an artificial island surrounded by a pond. It is connected with land by two colonnaded bridges. There is also an Amphitheatre by the pond and before the reconstruction of the palace in 1767, a French garden was set up. The palace was burnt down by the Nazis in 1944. Most valuable exhibits, including the paintings of Marcello Bacciarelli, were destroyed. Nowadays, the palace houses a museum and a painting gallery.
