« TATRZANSKA ATLANTYDA », REMEMBERING THE AESTHETIC OF LOST PLACES (AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH)    
 

„Tatrzańska Atlantyda”, or « The Atlantide of the Tatras » by Piotr Mazik is a photo book rassembling images from the collection of the Tatra Museum which co-publishes this work. Far from conventions, definetely surprising in its content and priviledging aesthetic, this work invites to contemplation and reflexion.

« SZLAK STYLU ZAKOPIAŃSKIEGO », A GUIDE IN ENGLISH TO DISCOVER THE ARCHITECTURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF ZAKOPANE    
 

On July 16th 2014, the Museum of the Tatras celebrated an important day in its development with the opening of a course dedicated to the discovery of the specific architectural style of Zakopane under the name of « Szlak Stylu Zakopiańskiego ». Through the proposed route, it is possible to discover more than 40 houses and monuments built following stylistic requirements as they were defined by Witkiewicz.

THE EXCEPTIONAL « PORTRET OF KRYSTYNA AND LUDWIK FISHER » IS NOW IN WILLA OKSZA    
 

This unique art piece by Witkiewicz can now be seen at Willa Oksza. The artist is one of the most famous Polish artist of the 20th C. He founded his own firm of portret-making and he remains famous for this. He defined rules for five different categories of portraits (which he named after the letters A to E) : each one had its own characteristics and its price. The children depicted here belong the the A category : designed in a hyperrealistic style on a background including surrealistic features.

ARTISTS AND ART IN ZAKOPANE

the newest branch of the Tatra Museum
Zakopane, ul. Zamoyskiego 25
 
The exhibition presents the output of the artistic community and artists who were temporarily connected with Zakopane at a time when the village was Poland’s leading centre of artistic excellence. All of them drew inspiration from the Tatra mountains and the Tatra Highlander culture. The display is presented in the interiors of Oksza villa, designed by Stanisław Witkiewicz in 1894 in the Zakopane Style, which was restored by the Tatra Museum in 2010.
