A self-portrait with Family, by Jerzy Duda-Gracz, c.1979
A selection of artwork by the Polish artist Jerzy Duda-Gracz .
Jerzy Duda-Gracz was a Polish painter and professor of painting and drawing at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. He was known as an insightful satirist in the tradition of surrealism and expressionism. Many of his paintings arouse strong emotions as his work covers themes such as stupidity, intolerance, hypocrisy, arrogance, laziness, and the blind fascination with money and American culture.
He died in Lagow, Lubuskie, in 2004.
His paintings can be seen at museums and galleries in Czestochowa, Gdańsk, Krakow, Lodz, Poznań, Toruń, and Warsaw in Poland; and outside Poland in Florence, the Vatican, Moscow, Ghent, Vienna, and Oldenburg. His art can also be found on display on the walls of many private homes (including ours!) throughout the world.
