Witkacy Metaphysical Portraits | Robert Miller Gallery
Witkacy Metaphysical Portraits: Photographs by Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz

Robert Miller Gallery, Bilingual edition, 1999. Hardcover, 151 pgs, 64 color & 40 b&w. Essays by Urszula Czaroryska, Stefan Okolowicz, T. O. Immisch, Klaus E. Goltz, Ulrich Pohlmann. Bilingual text in English and German. Fascinating book on Polish avant-garde artist, writer, and photographer Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz, focusing on his remarkable portraiture, conceived as "soul portraits" in the manner of Munch and Strindberg. Beautifully printed, with over 70 full-page plates - haunting, psychological work, a link between the soulful Victorian portaiture of Julia Margaret Cameron and the deeply felt, spiritual work of Helmar Lerski. A major reappraisal showcasing some of photography's most compelling portraiture - an absolute revelation.
