Karol Szymanowski met Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz in Zakopane in the summer of 1904. The acquaintance quickly turned into many years of friendship. In March and April 1905, they travelled around Italy together and met in Zakopane on many occasions. Szymanowski dedicated his I Piano Sonata in C minor Op. 8 composed in the period 1903—1904 “to Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz” (it was published in print in 1910). Witkacy, in turn, dedicated his one-act drama, Nowe Wyzwolenie [The New Deliverance], to the composer. In Witkacy's novels, Pożegnanie jesieni [Farewell to Autumn], Nienasycenie [Insatiability] and Jedyne wyjście [Only Way Out], the music and person of Karol Szymanowski occupy an important place.
Witkacy created four portraits of Szymanowski, which he then gave to the composer. The composer was portrayed by Witkacy for the first time in 1922 while staying at the Limba Villa on Ogrodowa Street. That painting is exhibited at the Theatre Museum [Muzeum Teatralne] in Warsaw. The three other portraits by Szymanowski were created in 1930 and 1931, when the composer lived in Zakopane. They are part of a permanent exhibition of the Karol Szymanowski Museum at the Atma Villa in Zakopane.
The portrait in question was created when Szymanowski lived in Zakopane in the Atma Villa between 24 October 1930 and 5 November 1935. The portrait stayed at Atmauntil 1936 and then was given to the composer's family.
In 1975 it was incorporated into the collection of the Museum, which received it from Krystyna Dąbrowska, the composer's niece. Since 1976, the picture has been part of a permanent collection at the Karol Szymanowski Museum (Atma Villa).
