Print description

The present plaque in the form of tondo is sometimes mistakenly described as a representation of The Three Graces. In reality, the relief depicts three personifications of art: painting (the woman on the left, holding a palette), architecture (the woman in the middle, holding a model of a building) and sculpture (the man holding the head of a statue). Inspired by ancient art, Poplawski used a characteristic composition typical of the depiction of the Graces, and the characters are represented as idealized nude figures.

Stanisław Hilary Popławski (1886–1959) was born in Warsaw as the son of painter Bronislaw Poplawski and Maria née Kruszewska. He started his artistic education at Wojciech Gerson’s School of Drawing in Warsaw and at the private studio of the sculptor Pius Weloński. In 1906, thanks to a scholarship, he stayed in Florence. In 1906–1911, having returned from Italy, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków under the tutelage of Konstanty Laszczka and Alfred Daun. In the years 1912–1913 he stayed in Paris and then settled permanently in Kraków.
