Throughout his life, Polish painter Andrzej Wróblewski (1927–57) moved on the fringes of society; contemporaries described him as a “painter of a tragic generation.” This publication explores the reception of his work—somber portraits and images of city life rendered in a cool, muted palette.

In only a single decade--he died prematurely at the age of 30--Polish figurative painter Andrzej Wróblewski (1927-1957) created an unusual oeuvre depicting the decay of the human body and soul. This volume presents the artist as a theorist and a commentator on the art and cultural life of his time.
