Henryk Stazewski Portrait Henryk Stazewski (1894 - 1988)

A Polish abstract painter and maker of reliefs, born in Warsaw. He studied at the Warsaw School of Fine Arts 1913-20, and was afterwards strongly influenced by Cubism.

He participated in the New Art exhibition in Vilno in 1923 organised by Strzeminski and Kajruksztis, and joined the Blok group of Cubists, Suprematists and Constructivists that resulted.

He became Editor-in-chief of the first five issues of the periodical Blok 1924. From 1926 adopted an abstract style influenced by Dutch Neo-Plasticism and Russian Constructivism. He spent much of the period 1929-34 in Paris, where he took an active part in the groups Cercle et Carré and Abstraction-Création with Arp, Mondrian, Vantongerloo and others; also helped to collect works by avant-garde artists to establish a new museum of abstract art at Lodz.
