Information about author
While studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow between 1926 and 1932, as well as in Paris between 1929 and 1931, Leopold Levytskyi, a member of the Krakow Group (1932–1937), was influenced by the avant-garde artistic trends, which affected his later creative work. The artist's oeuvre is dominated by two figurative themes, namely an individual and a city. These two principles, the humanistic and the urban ones, are conceptually complementary and interdependent. The images of a man and a city accompanied the artist from the beginning of his career, namely from the 1930s. Modern artistic tendencies are clearly traced in his compositions of this time.
