Biography

Polish painter Felicjan Kowarski studied in Odessa, St. Petersburg, and München. Beginning in 1920, he worked in Toruń (in German: Thorn) as a graphic designer. He experimented with Cubism and Futurism, which also resulted in his affinity for architecture. Between the wars, Kowarski was involved in the restauration of the Wawel castle in Warszawa (Warshaw) and travelled to Italy and France, where he was influenced by Renaissance art. He later became a professor of murals in Kraków and Warszawa. He was best known in Poland for his monumental wall and ceiling paintings. After the establishment of the Polish People’s Republic, Kowarski gave expression to humanistic and heroic revolutionary ideals in several series of paintings related to Socialist realism.
