A special tribute to my great aunt Maria Koźniewska-Kalinowska 1875 – 1968
Maria (Mania) studied painting (1893-1902) in the studio of Józefa Pankiewicza in Warsaw. Her studies continued in Paris in the Academy of Wittii Colarossi (1903-1911). She also studied under Olga Boznańska in Paris. In February 1903 she won a silver medal from the Academy. In her earlier years she exhibited in Paris in 1904 and in London 1905.
The exhibition below displays photographs of her portrait oil paintings, as well as flower still-life and one of her favorite subjects, the gypsies.
