Portraits and Female Nudes, 1950s
The series of pen-and-ink portraits dated 1954 coincided with the publication of the how-to book Portrait Photography. In the small volume, Dłubak explained the technical rudiments of portrait-making – from posing the model, through composition planning, down to the aperture and exposure parameters. At the same tine, he was studying the portrait representation in drawing. Among the works from the 1950s is a sketch for the oil painting "Portrait of an Old Woman" (1955), as well as portraits of Urszula Dłubak and Henryk Stażewski.
