Władysław Czachórski

Wladyslaw Czachorski
Władysław Czachórski was a Polish painter active in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Though he also painted still life, landscapes and other subjects, Czachórski was known primarily for his portraits and genre paintings of women, dressed in finery and expressively posed among flowers and elegant furnishings. These were rendered with academic realism and a finessed command of textures and tone.

Some of his compositions were apparently closely repeated with different models, perhaps because of requests from patrons, or because of the success of particular subjects.

He was also noted for his interpretations of scenes from Shakespeare’s plays.

Resources for images of Czachórski’s work are somewhat scattered, and a number of the reproductions are not of good quality, but you will find enough that are to give you a feeling for his style.
