Gallery of 19th Century Art, written by Iwona Danielewicz, translated by Simon Włoch, graphic design: Mesmer Center, 32 pages, illustrated, Warsaw: The National Museum in Warsaw, 2012, ISBN 987-83-7100-819-1
A guide to the Gallery of 19th Century Art opened in the Jubilee Year commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the NMW. The gallery recreates the former aesthetic and historical exhibition model, based on the chronological display of works grouped according to style, trend and artistic circle (e.g. the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich or St. Petersburg, the Pont-Aven School, Les Nabis) and showcasing artistic personalities. The 19th-century works by Polish and European artists are shown side by side, revealing both similarities and differences, which enables viewers to see the specificity of the Polish Modernism against the background of European art.
