Wanda Ślędzińska (1906–1999), a sculptor and a pedagogue associated with the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków for many decades. She started working at the academy as an assistant at Xawery Dunikowski’s studio. Ślędzińska was the first woman to become the head of the Faculty of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. She held this post until she retired in 1970.
Wanda Ślędzińska created intimate sculptures in plaster, wood, and artificial stone. In her creations, she mostly remained faithful to representational art. Her work was influenced by, among others, Xawery Dunikowski’s sculptures. She has an extensive artistic legacy, in which highly successful portrait studies dominate. The artist received numerous awards and was honoured many times. Her works may be found in a few collections in Kraków: the National Museum (Muzeum Narodowe), the collections of the Polish Academy of Learning, the Jagiellonian University and the AGH University of Science and Technology.
Ślędzińska trained many students who followed and still follow various artistic paths. Honourable mentions include: Bogumił Zagajewski, Stefan Papp, Bogusław Gabryś, Wincent Kućma, Jan Siek, Zygmunt Piekacz, Józef Sękowski, Stanisław Lenar, Józef Kalinowski-Kalinowa, Teresa Wojtasiewicz-Siek, Helena Łyżwa, Jerzy Nowakowski, Janina Jeleńska-Papp, and Aleksander Śliwa.
Her family home in Stryszów was a place of artistic and cultural meetings. In addition to the graduates of the Faculty of Sculpture of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, she hosted a number of well-known people from the world of culture. She was visited by such guests as: Wisława Szymborska, Kornel Filipowicz, Jan Józef Szczepański, Marian Konieczny, Hanna Rudzka-Cybisowa, Jacek Puget, Franciszek Suknarowski, Bogusław Schäffer, Anna Wallek-Walewska, Anna and Jacek Kajtoch.
