Knight and Muse
Information about author
This is a bust-length portrait of a mustachioed man dressed in a suit of knightly armor. In his right hand, he holds a stick with a coat of arms, on which the figure of a woman with raised hands sitting on an animal (bear?) is depicted. There is an image of a crown with a cross above them. To the right of the man there is a portrait of a woman with bare breasts. She has a wreath of flowers with ribbons of yellow, blue, and green colors flying in the wind. The woman holds a lyre in her hands.
There is an author's inscription on the left hand of the knight "Jacek Malczewski 1903".
