In December, after a 20 year break, the National Museum in Wrocław reopens its permanent exhibition of European art. The display will feature almost 300 paintings as well as examples of sculpture and artistic craft. The visitors will have an opportunity to discover the work of such well-known artists as Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Giovanni Santi (Rafael’s father), Lukas Cranach and Wassily Kandinsky, as well as artists forgotten today but who, in their time, contributed to the most important tendencies in European art. Given the character of the Wrocław collections, they will be mostly works by German creators. But pieces by artists from other European countries will also be present.
