Print description

The sculpture comes from the palace in Bobrek and represents one of the Potulicki Counts (the trouble is that it is unclear which one). The name “Kazimierz Count Potulicki” was used in the case of Kazimierz Ludwik Łukasz Count Potulicki of Więcborg, of the Grzymała coat of arms (1793–1871) and his son, Kazimierz Wojciech Count Potulicki of Więcborg, of the Grzymała (1820–1880) coat of arms.

The sculpture presents a neoclassical portrait of a young man with a bare chest, a long and slender neck and a thin face. At the bottom of the bust, there is the inscription: “KAZIMIERZ HR. POTULICKI.”
The sculpture comes from the palace in Bobrek and represents one of the Potulicki Counts (the trouble is that it is unclear which one). The name “Kazimierz Count Potulicki” was used in the case of Kazimierz Ludwik Łukasz Count Potulicki of Więcborg, of the Grzymała coat of arms (1793–1871) and his son, Kazimierz Wojciech Count Potulicki of Więcborg, of the Grzymała (1820–1880) coat of arms. The first of them was a meritorious officer, an insurgent of the November Insurrection, as well as a landowner, who became the owner of Bobrek thanks to his second marriage with Barbara Julianna Ewa Countess Wielopolska of Zabełcz, of the Starykoń coat of arms, daughter of Roch Count Wielopolski, with whom he had nine children. However, in the year when the bust was made, he would have been 46. Of course, he could have ordered his idealised image as it was often the case. On the other hand, the sculpture may represent his only son from his first marriage (with Gabriela Mielżyńska, of the Nowina coat of arms), Kazimierz Wojciech already mentioned above, who, when the effigy was made, was 19 years old. This would harmonise with the youthful bust made by Tomasz Oskar Sosnowski.
Therefore, there is no certainty which one of the Potulicki counts we can see. Perhaps one of our visitors will reveal some information to us, clarifying the history of the presented sculpture?
