Few mementoes and works of art directly associated with Karol Szymanowski have been preserved to this day. Therefore, the posthumous mask makes for quite a unique document. Suffering from tuberculosis, Szymanowski died in Le Signal hospital in Lausanne. The mask was made right after his death by a Swiss sculptor, Lucien Jules Delerse. It is the only cast of the composer's face. The mask was exhibited at the National Museum in Warsaw during funeral ceremonies in April 1937 and on the first anniversary of the artist's death. Since 1976, the mask is on permanent display at the Karol Szymanowski Museum (in the Atma Villa) in Zakopane.
