Paintings and drawings



An inventory of all Hiszpanski's postwar works (as only these survived) was carried out in the course of preparations for the retrospective exhibition, which took place in the Warsaw "Zacheta" Gallery. The entire surviving artistic output of Stanislaw Hiszpanski comprises 636 works. More then 140 works have been acquired by various museums and the Ministry of Art and Culture. Many others are in private hands.

His pictures testify to a man of many passions - an architect, a historian and archeologist, an aviator and mountaineer, a collector of folklore, and a philosopher. Here we present pictures representing cycles or sets inspired by:
