    I think this is my favourite so far, anyway…..

  • Thanks Ben – that’s why I chose it for the cover of the book. I’m sifting through files of what’s already done to see what’s large and good enough quality for RB – I may have to rescan some of the earlier work by Wlad and get some of those dark, moody abstracts by Ludwik too.

    Love the colours here.

  • My late father was a brilliant colourist, one of the most striking features of all his paintings, but especially his masterpieces.

    – Adam JL Dutkiewicz

  • I see you are Perth based – my father stayed in Northam when he first migrated, in 1949; his first paintings in Oz were done in Perth.

    Wow what real striking art!

  • people here don’t really remember him or his art, not much respect. But he was really a giant of modern art in Australia.

    Fantastic! Such great details and textures. I love the bold use of colors and the dynamics and complexity of the composition. The man was a great artist! How good of you to share it with us through RB!

    I just discovered today that this was Wlad’s entry in the Contemporary Art Society of South Australia’s Cornell Prize in 1963 – previously I had seen it in a catalogue from 1970, but it all makes sense now.
