andrzej wróblewski recto/ verso

This is a new book on the preeminent postwar artist Andrzej Wróblewski (1927-1957). His life was short but insanely prolific. The legacy of Wróblewski is grim, death-obsessed and painfully tormented. It goes without saying that it has never felt more contemporary than now. The volume consists of essays by a team of international scholars and is published by the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, accompanying the show Recto/ Verso, which opened yesterday.
