Temporary changes in the Matejko Room
On July 16th Jan Matejko’s Portrait of the artist’s three children: Tadeusz, Helena and Beata (1870) will be temporarily replaced with the same artist’s Portrait of daughter, Beata Kirchmayer neé Matejko with a canary bird (1882). The artwork is part of a group of officially styled portraits created in 1882.

During this time, the monumental Battle of Grunwald will remain available to see from the room’s entryway. Following renovation, Sermon... will be on loan to the Royal Castle in Warsaw until 29th of October.
