6 March 1926 – 9 October 2016

The Royal Łazienki Museum bids farewell to Andrzej Wajda, an outstanding director, who gained a reputation as one of the most distinguished film directors in the world. Alongside Bergman, Fellini and Kurosawa, by making films which drew on Polish history. Andrzej Wajda, who made a huge contribution to Polish national culture, now holds a rightful place among those who have contributed to global culture.

The Museum is exhibiting 14 photographs by Czesław Czapliński. The photographs begin with the year 1986, in Kraków, with his wife Krystyna Zachwatowicz, when he was directing A. Fredro’s Zemsta for the National Old Theatre. There are also personal photographs of him among his beloved horses with his daughter Karolina and Beata Tyszkiewicz at his manor house in the village of Laskowo-Głuchy in the Masovia region, which was the birthplace of Cyprian Kamil Norwid. And the last symbolic photographs of a collection for the rescue of a historic cemetery.

Andrzej Wajda has passed away, but will remain with us forever through his films.
