Japanese Dolls

The irrepressible Parashutov continues his journey amongst the worlds of art and manages to find the most eclectic collections of themes one can imagine. Here are some excerpts from a recent collection of art works featuring Japanese dolls.

Properly, this Polish artist’s works shouldn’t belong on this blog – Olga Boznańska (1865-1940) was born in Krakow, which was not in the Russian Empire – but what the heck: we haven’t had decent still lifes for a while.

And, finally, we have another Polish master, Gustaw Gwozdecki (1880-1935):

One thought on “Japanese Dolls

  1. Even if some polish painters were born during russian occupation, they shouldn’t be mentioned on this blog. Not only Olga Boznańska, but nobody. Polish people were always polish, doesn’t matter what was the political situation. Otherwise this is simply stealing heritage and confusing readers of this blog. Not very elegant.
