About this title


This work addresses the life and work of Stanislaw Frenkiel (1918-2001), a painter dedicated to figurative expression. His studies began in Cracow, his home city, but were interrupted by World War II, in the course of which he was imprisoned in Russia and later served in the Allied Forces. His studies were resumed after the war: his fine art training being complemented by Frenkiel's graduation in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute. Frenkiel exhibited widely, showing his work in numerous countries including the UK, Poland and the United States and his works feature in collections such as the British Museum and the National Museums of Cracow, Lodz and Gdansk. He was also widely collected. Alongside his artistic achievements he held academic seats at the University of London, where he was an Emeritus Reader, and at the Cracow Academy of Fine Art, where he was an Honorary Professor.

About the Author:

Anthony Dyson is a printmaker, teacher and art historian. In 1988 he left his post as Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Education, University of London (where he and Frankiel were colleagues), to establish the Black Star Press, where he prints and publishes editions of etchings and engravings.
