Biography

Janina Konarska-Słonimska was a Polish graphic artist and sculptor. She came from a wealthy industrialist family named Seideman. After studying in Warszawa she officially took on her professional name of Konarska in 1924. Her Jewish family converted to Catholicism and changed their name accordingly. Konarska’s favorite technique was color woodcut, but she also painted landscapes and illustrated books. She successfully exhibited her works, which emphasized saints and animals. She then joined the Skamanderartists’ group, where she was admired for her intelligence and beauty. In 1934 Konarska married the Polish poet and writer Antoni Słonimski, another member of the group, while Janina gradually withdrew from artistic activity. Her painting Stadium was honored with the silver medal in the category Graphic Arts within the 1932 Los Angeles Art Competitions.
