Exhibition about life and work of Jan Ignacy Paderewski

Date: 09.11.2020 - 31.12.2020
Exhibition about life and work of Jan Ignacy Paderewski

"Paderewski… Paderewski…" is the title of a commemorative online exhibition marking the 160th anniversary of Ignacy Jan Paderewski’s birth, organised by the Jagiellonian Library. The exhibition includes manuscripts, photographs, press clippings, catalogues, occasional prints and other items related to the life and work of the outstanding pianist, composer and statesman.

 

The authors’ intention is to present Paderewski's activity in the musical, social and political arena, without avoiding the private aspects of his life. The presented historical sources are unique. In addition to the "great history", the exhibition provides glimpses of Paderewski's everyday life, his family relations, his intimate world, giving an opportunity to present the aspects of the biography of this famous historical figure in less known and non-obvious contexts.

The exhibition can be viewed on the Jagiellonian Digital Library website.
