|Cottages in the Mountains, 1940s, Andrzej Wroblewski|
--recalling his homeland before the war.
|An artist defying the odds.|
|Shining a searing light on the worst social and military excesses of a tortured continent.|
|Whether the scenes above are literal or symbolic matters little. |
The young boy no doubt represents the artist himself.
|Driving home the most intimate horrors of war.|
|Museum, 1956, Andrzej Wroblewski. The painting suggests|
the difficulties European historians were still having in
coming to terms with WW II atrocities more than ten years
after the fighting ended.
