Jacek Malczewski began systematic studies at the School of Fine Arts in Kraków in the middle of 1873. His first teachers were Władysław Łuszczkiewicz, a historical painter and a well-known art historian, and Feliks Szynalewski. His education was also overseen by Jan Matejko, to whom Malczewski was very attentive. He recalled the teachings of Łuszczkiewicz in March 1873 in a letter to a friend, Piotr Hubal Dobrzański: “he gives me anatomical drawings for copying from time to time (…). I attend all lectures diligently; at home I read about the life of Saint Francis in French, which I find absorbing (…) I believe that more and more moral resources must be gathered within ourselves...”[1]. Malczewski also appreciated the role of the study of drawing. He wrote about it in a letter to his parents: “Drawing, dear Parents is the foundation, and a perfect drawing is a very rare, very difficult thing, demanding a lot of work”[2].
The result of his pursuit of drawing is a study showing Baroque stalls in the Corpus Christi Church in Kazimierz [a city district] in Kraków. On July 30, 1874, and thus at the end of the school year, Jacek Malczewski signed a receipt for 20 guilders which he had received from the management of the Society of Friends of Fine Arts as a prize for the “perspective rendition” of the stalls. Awarding the prize was confirmed by Jan Matejko and Florian Cynk.
