Jacek Malczewski (b. 15 July 1854 in Radom; d. 8 October 1929 in Kraków) was one of the most famous painters of Polish symbolism. Many of his canvases feature his own self-portraits in elaborate costume; a trade-mark of his style often displaying of a great sense of humor. In 1897–1900 and 1912–1921 Malczewski served as Professor of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, and was elected Rector of the Academy in 1912. His art has been compared to that of French Gustave Moreau, Swiss Arnold Böcklin, and even Spanish Salvador Dalí. His paintings received high honours at the international exhibits including Berlin in 1891, Munich in 1892, and Paris in 1900.[1]
