Tomasz Lisiewicz (1857–1930), a painter, a graduate of the Lviv Polytechnic and the School of Fine Arts in Kraków, where he studied under the direction of Jan Matejko. Lisiewicz painted mainly historical, patriotic, and religious themes. The presented still life makes reference to a particular period in history. On the red drapery lies a silver or tin plate on which military items rest – a rapier or a sword with a basket-shape hand-guard, a closed helmet (visor) in the Maximilian armour type, and a gilded mace. A piece of fur has been placed next to the plate. The background of the composition imitating a historical kurdyban [leather wall covering] is painted in noble shades of brown and covered with subtle, almost invisible ornaments.
