You are invited to an exhibition presenting the emigration work of Tadeusz Wojnarski, soldier and painter. The exhibition includes 50 nature-themed paintings divided into categories such as: forest, water, mountains and human impact on nature.
Tadeusz Wojnarski (1922–1999) was a soldier and painter. The exhibition of his works is an example of his achievements while in exile. In January 1940, as a young man, he was deported far into the USSR, leaving behind his mother and brother in Lviv; he then experienced the war as a Soviet prisoner and Siberian exile. In 1942, he joined the Polish Armed Forces in the East. Then, together with General Władysław Anders’s II Polish Corps, he followed the line of march from USSR to Italy taking part, among other things, in the Battle of Monte Cassino in 1944. As a soldier, he continued to develop his artistic talent, creating portraits and landscapes. He used drawing, watercolour, gouache and oil techniques. He eventually completed his art studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid. In 1959, he settled with his wife and children in Zurich permanently.
Tadeusz Wojnarski left behind a rich collection of works created using various techniques. The exhibition in the Cantonists’ Barracks is a fragment of the artist’s work. It shows him as a man who is sensitive to the surrounding nature.
