Muzeum Narodowe w Warszawie – National art

The National Museum in Warsaw has been through quite a lot lately: new exhibitions, new graphic design, new website, new cafe. The changes made are visible: one of the late exhibitions called: “The Elevated. From pharaohs to Lady GaGa” was an absolute hit and the exhibits astounded even the greatest admirers of art.

There are many sculptures and reliefs, some of them from the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, works of Lucas Cranach the Older, busts of the famous and infamous. From modern times: photos by Poremba or a giant work by Nicholas Robespierre, a French photographer based in Warsaw. My personal favorite was a red and white chess set, a rare and extremely precisely carved rarity, and portraits of one of the Sejm members at the beginning of the 20th Century.

Until 7 January 2018 the exhibition shows Biedermeier style.

The National Museum also has an art/book shop – an endless source of engaged books, interesting t-shirts, postcards and gadgets.
