About Paz florencki

“Paz florencki,” a captivating work by the Polish artist Aleksander Gierymski, was created in 1884 during a period of artistic exploration for Gierymski. The artwork stands as a testament to Gierymski’s innovative approach to art, showcasing his ability to capture the essence of a moment with a play of light and color.

The painting is a portrait that depicts a young child with long hair, wearing a yellow vest and a red “fez” style cap.  It is painted in the Impressionist style.

Born on January 30, 1850, in Warsaw, Poland, Gierymski was a pivotal figure in the Polish Realism movement and also made significant contributions to Impressionism within his country. His education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, where he graduated with a gold medal, laid the foundation for his illustrious career.

“Paz florencki” is one of the many remarkable pieces Gierymski created during his lifetime. It reflects his mastery of Impressionism and his unique perspective on the world around him. Although his life ended in tragedy, with his passing in a mental hospital in Rome between March 6 and 8, 1901, and his subsequent burial at the Campo Verano Cemetery, his legacy lives on through his art. Gierymski’s work continues to be celebrated for its realism and emotional depth, capturing the human experience with authenticity and compassion.
