Modernism left behind a magnificent gallery of portraits. The majority are likenesses of people in different ways connected with artistic-intellectual milieus, especially those of Warsaw and Cracow. Never before did Polish painters penetrate the psyche of their models, and reach the inner life concealed behind the mask of a face, as was now accomplished by Olga Boznanska or Konrad Krzyzanowski. It was precisely these portraits - nervous, restless, melancholy - which most markedly disclosed decadent autumnal ambience, the waning of an epoch which so readily accentuated its youth. An exception in the pessimistic tones was the radiant affirmation of life and its charms evoked by the paintings of Jozef Mehoffer. [*]
