Sorry I haven’t updated much lately. Spending the summer on a farm in Northumberland County, Ontario.
Antonio Ciseri - Magdalena (1870).
Polonia: Power in the Night, 1863, white pencil on cardboard by Artur Grottger, Polish, 1837-1867.
In the January Uprising in Poland in 1863, the Russian army made attempts to recruit Polish men into its ranks. The plan was a dismal failure, but Polish military officials were captured “to rid Poland of those who would disrupt the public order.”
Grottger illustrated for newspapers and magazines and produced woodcuts. This illustration is in the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, Hungary, and in the Krakow Museum in Krakow, Poland.
