Anna Karpowicz-Westner

Anna Karpowicz-Westner studied at the Academy of Fine Arts under the direction of professor Jan Szancenbach. She graduated in 1978. Her works have been presented in numerous exhibitions in Poland and abroad (Warsaw, Paris, Asnieres-Sur-Seine, Nuremberg, Tokyo, Vienna, Chicago, Cracow. Frankfurt, Bonn). They are to be found in private and public collections, including National Museum in Cracow and Deutches-Polen Institut in Darmstadt. Karpowicz is a laureate of many prestigious awards. She was awarded, among others, the Prix of the Odilon-Lesur-Adrian Foundations ( Le Salon’79, Paris).

The output of Anna Karpowicz derives out of the colourist movement. She mostly paints unusual, lyrical portraits and women nudes. Those nostalgic women, framed in thoughtfulness, last in the inertness, stillness of the moment. The colour and the light create the atmosphere of the places and moments, change the elements of everyday reality into poetry of sleepy dusks and dawns, a poetry of gentleness, a moment of melancholy, a poetry of silence.
