Wierusz-Kowalski <br/>inscribed on reverse [label]: Professor A.W. Kowalski, Hochzeitsfahrt, 62 x 49 <br/>1952.192<br/>PROVENANCE: Unknown<br/>REFERENCE: <br/><br/><br/>Going to the Wedding is a particularly good example of Wierusz-Kowalski''s unique color palette. The usually dark palette is contrasted by a bright red scarf worn by one of the female peasants. The red scarf consistently occurs within Wierusz-Kowalski''s various renditions of the theme ''peasant women riding on wagons''. (See Bühler, p. 161, Ritt zum Markt, ca. 1885; Vierspännig zum Markt, ca. 1890; Sonntagmorgen, ca. 1900) In Going to the Wedding, the red patch of color is further highlighted by the bright turquoise of the open sky. <br/>Wierusz-Kowalski''s brushstroke varies within one composition. While the white horses at the center of Going to the Wedding are clearly defined, the brushstroke becomes broader towards the outer rims of the composition. “The compartments of landscape give the impression - even the oil paintings - as if painted in water colors. The leaves, flowers or grass are painted with more depth of field and finally the figures are depicted as realistic as possible.” (Buehler, p. 42) While managing different brushstrokes in one composition, Wierusz-Kowalski achieves the impression of motion and depth.<br/><br/><br/>Wiebke M.

Light:<br/><br/>Racing the Horses<br/>alternate title: The Race<br/>oil on canvas, 24 ½ x 31 5/8 inch.<br/>signed L.R.: A. Wierusz-Kowalski <br/>inscribed on reverse [stamp]: R. Wurm/München<br/>1952.193<br/>PROVENANCE: Unknown <br/>REFERENCE: <br/><br/>“His peasants and Cossacks…and rural weddings are of picturesque perfection and full of sparkling life.” (Spemanns, 1698) Wierusz-Kowalski painted the theme of two horse carriages racing along a wooded path in multiple variations. Two renditions, Racing the Horses and Going to the Wedding, are in the holdings of the Frye Art Museum. The group of compositions around Racing the Horses can be classified as genre paintings of Polish peasantry, which Wierusz-Kowalski began painting in the late 1860''s. During the 1880''s Wierusz-Kowalski''s compositions of peasant genre had reached its peak. Most variations of the composition can be dated between 1880 and 1900. (See Bühler, p. 161, Ritt zum Markt, ca. 1885; Vierspännig zum Markt, ca. 1890; Sonntagmorgen, ca. 1900) <br/>In Racing the Horses, Wierusz-Kowalski particularly emphasizes the strength and energy of the white horses pulling the front wagon. Four festively dressed women occupy this carriage. As characteristic to the theme, a small spotted dog is playfully chasing along their side.<br/><br/>Wiebke M.
