A Malczewski at the Price of a Wardrobe
It’s a pity I wasn’t enough of a Malczewski fan in those days. I have two of his paintings, but in my youth, one could purchase a good painting of his at the price of a wardrobe. [...] His sister married the owner of Lusławice manor, and so our manor house became the model for all the manors represented in his works. He had a wooden studio in the park, but unfortunately not a trace of it remains.
