A woman’s work is never done
The title of the exhibition is an English proverb that is particularly popular in America. The central idea is to give an extensive survey of a woman’s jobs, household chores and activities in their artistic representations: realistic, symbolic and allegoric. The exhibition brings together 126 prints dating from the 16th to 19th centuries, and, in its final section, contemporary works of art: sculptures and installations from Polish and foreign private collections. These are intended as a counterpoint-in-the-round to the two-dimensional prints. The selection of prints includes plates by artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Peter Paula Rubens, William Hogarth, and a number of works representing the Italian, French and Dutch schools, rounded out by rare works by female printmakers. The backbone of the exhibition are pieces drawn from the Prints Room of the Scientifi c Library of the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences (PAU) and the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) in Krakow.
