View Full Version : Jan Szczepkowski

I'm guessing that a lot of good figure sculpture was made in Poland in the last century -- with demand from both the Catholic church and the socialist state.
But I've certainly had a hard time finding any.
Here's one I found today, Jan Szczepkowski-- though, unfortunately, it's on a website that seems to have been engineered to prevent copying:

Do you mean Googling this (sounds like baby talk :) ) didn't give you anything useful?
I don't know if these are relevant.
Here are what I got by a 2-cent 'Google Images' search, from free.art.pl (http://free.art.pl/podkowa.magazyn/nr34/galeria34.htm), from ddg.art.pl (http://www.ddg.art.pl/nm/collections/arts/20.szczepkowski.html), and from info-poland.buffalo.edu (http://info-poland.buffalo.edu/web/arts_culture/sc/ors/Szc/link.shtml).
And this one is about a Polish Sculpture Centre (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centre_of_Polish_Sculpture) with info and links to a list of polish sculptors.
Just curious. Have you by now listed any E Asian figurative sculptors other than from Japan?

Centre of Polish Sculpture (http://www.rzezba-oronsko.pl/) and the sculpture network (http://www.sculpture-network.org/intro/index.php?lang=en).

Thanks to everyone for the links and helpful suggestions.
In my defense (as a frustrated researcher rather than a garden-variety knucklehead) -- I can only say that the last time I was googling the web for Polish sculpture was about 4 years ago -- and much has changed since then.
And yes -- I do want to discover East Asian sculptors as well -- and need all the help I can get. I have the strong suspicion, for example, that hidden beneath all the tourist trash made in Bali --- there is some good sculpture to be found.

Thank you for posting a link to Jan Szczepkowski sculptural works. They are lovely. Very unique cubistic designs, yet you can see the feminine touch to them. Quite beautiful.

Interesting mix of Romanesque and Cubism (with probably other early European traditions). I particularly was intrigued by the image with about 4 apparently life-sized figures in niches outside of some building, but didn't see it in any of the English-languages pages. Anyone have a clue as to this location?

Yes, on such things, 4 years is a long time and much have changed. There are a lot more websites, and much more we can do with Google or other search engines. Other than the standard Google search, try clicking into 'Google Images' (http://www.google.com.sg/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi&q=) and see for yourself.

I can't find your website again, not under your personal profile. If you'd like to add this, click into the 'User CP' button on top.
You are focusing on good figurative sculptors, are you? Living ones?
