Karol Lanckoroński and His Viennese Collection (vol. 1)
Joanna Winiewicz-Wolska
The first such indepth scholarly account of the celebrated Lanckoroński collection reconstructs, based on archival sources, the holdings scattered and partly destroyed during World War II. The author traces the history of the collection from its inception in 1815 and the purchase of paintings from the legacy of Stanislaus August Poniatowski, the last king of Poland, to 1950 when it was reclaimed by Count Lanckoroński’s heirs. This is the first volume of a two-volume set; the second volume will be catalogue raisonné of the collection.
  • English, hardcover, 24.5 x 17.5 cm, approx. 520 pp., 168 illus.
