Jacek Malczewski (1854 - 1929) is a symbolist artist, one of the most famous representatives of Polish art at the beginning of the 20th century. He studied in Paris and Warsaw, where among his teachers was Jan Matejko. He often traveled to Europe, but was inspired mainly by the plots of Polish folklore and literature, and boldly interpreted by plots from mythology and the Bible.
