The most dramatic record of the problems experienced by a generation which was becoming part of post-war artistic life, is the intense, uneven, and unfulfilled oeuvre of Andrzej Wroblewski. His rebelion against professors-colourists was to turn into geometric abstraction; in the years 1948-1949 Wroblewski presented a series entitled Executions - canvases "as pungent as the odour of a corpse", with realistic, brutalised, and roughly hewn forms, the only in Polish plastic arts to bear such a direct imprint of wartime experiences. Wroblewski accepted the doctrine of socialist realism in good faith; in the last years of his brief life he painted metaphorical figural compositions which touched upon the drama of human existence, and are permeated by an awareness of the tragedy of life and a premonition of death.
