A lecture in the series “Young Poland's Revolution” organized by the Art Tranfser Foundation.
Boy-Żeleński admitted that no one took Wojtkiewicz seriously in the early 20th century. His works were described as strange and perverse; no one knew how to classify these works full of the grotesque and mysterious metaphors. Today the work of the author of Circuses is considered one of the most outstanding artistic achievements of Young Poland painting and graphic art.
