PAINTING-ON-THE-GLASS

This gallery shows paintings by Jolanta Peksa, that were presented on the retrospective exhibition in State Etnographical Museum in Warsaw.
The painting-on-the-glass is a traditional folk art in the highland regions of South Poland.
It presents religious themes (mostly from the Old Testament), motives of village and family life and highland robbers' adventures.

Reverse paintings on glass are produced in the southern mountainous regions of Poland.
Although the birth of this art form dates from the mid-19th C., there was a period when production practically ceased at the beginning of this century. Inadvertently, a Catholic priest, who encouraged his parishioners to paint depictions of saints for therapeutic activity, launched an active revival of glass painting after WW II.
There are very complex techniques involved in producing these paintings including the mixtures of the paints which are family held secrets. Many of the artists teach family members assuring the future of this tradition.
