Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jacek Malczewski began his artistic education at the Krakow School of Fine Arts. He was supervised by such artists as Feliks Szynalewski, Wladyslaw Luszczkiewicz, and Jan Matejko.

In 1876-1877, he studied at Paris École des Beaux Arts, supervised by E.H. Lehmanna.  In 1880, Malczewski traveled around Italy.  In 1884-1885, he took part, as a drawer, in the Karol Lanckoronski Asian expedition.  During that period he also visited Greece and Italy.

In 1885-1886, Malczewski spent a few months in Munich.  After his return, he moved to Krakow and settled there.  He still often visited Munich and Italy.

From 1896 to 1900, he taught at the Krakow School of Fine Arts and in the years 1911 and 1922 he was professor of the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts.  He was also the Academy’s Dean in the years 1912-14.

Malczewski spent the years 1914-1915 in Vienna.  In 1916, he returned to Krakow.  He spent the years prior to his death mainly in Luslawice and Charczewice.

Malczewski was cofounder of the Polish Artists’ Association “Sztuka” in 1897, and member of the "Zero"group in 1908.

In his early work period, Malczewski produced mainly portraits and generic scenes.  During his later art periods (beginning in the 1890’s) he created paintings with symbolical content and biblical, legendary, patriotic, or allegoric-fantasy themes.
