Portrait of Tekla Bielska
Information about author
Tekla Bielska of the Kalinowski family was a wife of Antoni Bielski, the Crown Court Master of the Hunt. The representative portrayal shows the bust-length figure of a woman three-quarters turned to the left, which is painted on a dark background. The details of the woman's costume are depicted meticulously. She is wearing a mob cap, a simple cap accessorised with a pink satin ribbon, and a silver-coloured dress. The woman is depicted with many pieces of jewellery, namely a necklace of two strings of pearls around her neck, and expensive earrings in the ears. The portrait is painted in pearlescent silver colors. The Lviv National Art Gallery collection houses two more identical half-length portraits of Tekla Bielska, one of which is signed by the artist Jozef Chojnicki.
