The reference to the famous Polish painter is by no means accidental. Jacek Malczewski lived in Lusławice in 1923-26, teaching children to draw. He immortalised the manor in his numerous paintings, two of which Penderecki purchased for his collection. This one-story house was built of larchwood in the early 19th century.
Penderecki bought it from Adolf Vayhinger, a descendant of its prewar owners. He added a porch at the back and a glazed-in verandah at the side of the original building. It was here that he found an ideal place to work, and to house his collection of paintings and… tile stoves.
