Abstract
  • While the Art Nouveau movement in Europe has been extensively studied, Polish art has been largely left out of the discussion. However, this absence should not be considered as proof that Polish artists did not create art works in the Art Nouveau style. In fact, Art Nouveau was prevalent in Poland, but unlike the movement in Europe, Polish Art Nouveau tended to have political undertones. This thesis examines how Polish artists adapted the wider Art Nouveau movement to Polish culture, and assisted the political agenda that Polish art had been charged with in the aftermath of the eighteenth century partitions. Furthermore, this thesis describes the wider Polish Art Nouveau movement and looks at the underlying meanings of paintings, stained glass window designs, posters, and postcards from 1890 to 1910.
