Alfons Borkowski (1850–1918), after finishing studies at the Wojciech Gerson School of Drawing in Warsaw (1876–1879), continued his education at the School of Fine Arts in Kraków, where in 1879–1887 he studied under Władysław Łuszczkiewicz, Leopold Loeffler and from 1882 with Jan Matejko for three years. The artist’s talent was already appreciated during his studies. At that time, Borkowski exhibited his works at the Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts and the Krywult Salon in Warsaw and at the Kraków Society of Friends of Fine Arts. He was interested mainly in genre and battle paintings, as well as hunting, religious themes and portraits.
The presented study of a nude figure, crafted with thick paints on cardboard, maintains a dark colour scheme – the figure of the naked model vividly stands out against the brown, neutral background. In Borkowski’s later works, in which genre scenes predominate, one can observe a penchant for colour studies and for meticulous depiction of details in scenes, which is the result of the artist’s studies under Jan Matejko.
