Adam Siemianowicz (family name: Ciopcio) was born in 1902 in Orenburg on the Ural River in the Russian Empire. The future painter was the son of Szymon Ciopcio and Julia née Abramik, peasants from Podlasie exiled to the Urals in 1888. The boy began to paint while still in Orenburg. At that time, he usually painted postimpressionism-styled landscapes.more
Adam Siemianowicz (family name: Ciopcio) was born in 1902 in Orenburg on the Ural River in the Russian Empire. The future painter was the son of Szymon Ciopcio and Julia née Abramik, peasants from Podlasie exiled to the Urals in 1888. The boy began to paint while still in Orenburg. At that time, he usually painted postimpressionism-styled landscapes.
The Ciopcio family returned to Poland in 1922. In the same year, Adam Ciopcio began to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. During the period 1922–1924 he was educated under the tutelage of Władysław Jarocki, and from 1923 for seven years under the guidance of Józef Mehoffer. During his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, he received praise almost every year, and in 1925 he won a cash prize. During his studies, Siemianowicz worked at Krakowskie Zakłady Witrażów Żeleński [Żeleński’s Stained Glass Works in Kraków]. Then, he collaborated with Józef Mehoffer in the production of stained glass windows and paintings. With time, he obtained his own orders for paintings. During the WWII he found himself under the Russian occupation and in 1940 he was exiled to Tavda in the Sverdlovsk Oblast [district]. The painter returned to Poland in 1945. From 1947 until his death he worked at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. His followers included: Zbysław Maciejewski, Adam Wsiołkowski, Leszek Misiak, Andrzej Ziembiński and Tadeusz Mysłowski. In 1948 Adam Ciopcio officially changed his name to Siemianowicz, which he had used in the interwar years.
The sanguine study of the nude was created during Adam Siemianowicz’s seven-year period of education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. The drawing is not dated, but it can be presumed that it was created in 1925, because it has been preserved in the collections of the Museum of the Academy of Fine Arts as an award-winning student work.
