Jakub Kubicki (1758-1833)

Be sure that I will remember you as praiseworthy too’ – with these words, when leaving Warsaw in January of 1795, Stanisław August parted with Jakub Kubicki, one of his most valued architects. He was part of a younger generation of artists of Polish origin educated at the Royal court, for whom the King had special praise, and in whom he placed his highest hopes. He played a decisive role in the fulfilment of some of the most important ideas of Stanisław August: the Ujazdów Church, the construction of Kozienice, and the Congress of Kaniów.
