A separate phenomenon, distinct not only against the backdrop of Polish modernism, is the art of Witold Wojtkiewicz. Neurotic, intellectual, quiet, with subdued, gouache tones, these canvases are an introduction to a sorrowful, apparently fairy-tale, grotesque, and artificial world in which strangely aged children play their ambiguous roles.
