Polish painting, 1959

The poster for the "Poolse Schilderkunst van nu" [Polish painting now] exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (1959) is a rare example in Zamecznik’s practice of a raw painting gesture. The Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts yearbook for 1974 quotes him as saying: ‘I view art a bit like the production of machines, the construction of buildings. I try to use prefabricated elements, as it were, such as type, and other ready-made forms. The brush I use least often’.
