A drastic rejection of accepted principles of depiction was made in the youthful works of Wojciech Weiss. The impact of Stanislaw Przybyszewski and his theory of the "naked soul", a source of fascination for the Cracow milieu, endowed these paintings with ecstatic expression, whose violence and pan-eroticism are comparable only with the art of Edvard Munch, the great Norwegian artist of the period.
