Print description

Jacek Malczewski’s palette is one of the several painting palettes preserved in a collection of memorabilia of famous artists associated with the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. It served for oil painting. Its large size, streamlined, heart-like shape and thumb hole, as well as its small weight – resulting from the type of wood used – made it possible to conveniently hold the palette on the forearm and support it by propping it against the side.

Jacek Malczewski’s palette is one of the several painting palettes preserved in a collection of memorabilia of famous artists associated with the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. It served for oil painting. Its large size, streamlined, heart-like shape and thumb hole, as well as its small weight – resulting from the type of wood used – made it possible to conveniently hold the palette on the forearm and support it by propping it against the side. Painting palettes were usually made of pear, beech, sycamore or apple tree wood. It was necessary to impregnate the wood with linseed oil to prevent it from subsequently being soaked with the binder and oil from the paint. There are numerous known self-portraits depicting Malczewski with a palette of similar size and shape. It can be presumed that the artist could have sometimes made self-portraits while using this very palette.
