Boznańska. Non finito

Angelika Kuźniak

Olga Boznańska needs no introduction. She was one of Europe’s leading female painters, who managed to create her own, unique style, and entirely devoted her life to art. Born in Kraków, she spent a long time wandering the world, finally settling in 1898 in the capital of art – Paris. Boznańska was a child of her epoch. Her avant-garde view of the world and society was a perfect match for Paris’ Fin de siècle atmosphere and let her spread her wings. She was undoubtedly the greatest woman painter of her day. This portrait by Angelika Kuźniak is less a biography than a compelling tale of the life of a unique woman. Scandalous, charismatic, and bold, she knew how to stand up for her rights. Boznańska wrote in a letter: “Painting is my happiness, I long for no other, and when I will be unable to paint I should end my life”. We see the same passion in her biographer.
