Thursday on Tłomackie. Meetings with Art. Discussions on the work.
The subject of the meeting will be the figure of Maurycy Trębacz (1861–1941), once an important painter and teacher, today an artist who is almost forgotten. In the late 19th century he was very successful in Poland, Paris and Munich, with Earl Benzelstjerna Engeström being his patron. He won a bronze medal at the Universal Exposition in Paris. Since around 1909, he lived in Lódź, actively participating in the artistic life of the city. He was a person who media were interested in. Future students of Władysław Strzemiński began their artistic training with him. In the 1930s Trębacz earned a living teaching and he also received aid from the municipality of Łódź. He died of hunger in the Łódź Ghetto.
On the example of Maurycy Trębacz we will show life and creative experiences of Jewish artists not only of his generation.
