A FAMILY OF ARTISTS: OTTO, ANNA, LUDWIK MACIAG.

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A book of paintings and ceramics from the Maciag family.

Includes paintings of the River Wye, River Monnow and Tintern Forest to name a few.

The Maciag name – through Otto Maciag and his daughter Anna – has been a fixture on the county’s arts scene for many years. Otto’s brother Ludwik was also an accomplished artist in Poland.

Otto and Ludwik’s father served with the Austro-Hungarian army – the southern part of Poland he was born into then being subsumed by the Austro-Hungarian Empire – and fought in the First World War in the Balkans.

The Second World War tore the family apart again.

Otto found himself in the UK where he become one of the first, if not the first, exiles to be appointed as a teacher here.

Ludwik stayed on in Poland, narrowly escaped deportation by the Communists to Siberia for being in the Polish underground army and eventually became dean of the Warsaw Academy of Art.

Otto’s daughter, Anna, was responsible for various Chopin bicentenary concerts in Bristol and Hereford.

CONDITION: Neat and tidy with DJ. No Inscriptions or Notations. Some markings on top left of page 55(see photos for reference) but otherwise clean and bright.
