In this workshop, teachers explore the art of miniature not as a historical subject, but in a theoretical manner, setting off from contemporary artworks diverse in form and shape. We first closely examine contemporary forms of miniature via online games based on detailed images from selected artworks in the exhibition. Then, during the workshop, we forge new compositions by employing different materials such as crayon, watercolor and felt-tip pen and different techniques such as scraping, splashing and drawing, setting off from minute details in the artworks. We discuss our sentiments and observations based on the artworks we have reinterpreted and then share the story of this production. We discover different methods of communicating through art, and learn various techniques of expression through first-hand experience.

At the Order of the Padishah

At the Order of the Padishah

In this piece, Żmurko presents an exotic image of a harem chamber, replete with gleaming fabrics and scattered jewels, as a setting for the statuesquely beautiful body of an odalisque murdered “at the order of the padishah”. 

The Battle of Varna

The Battle of Varna

Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms. 

Return from Vienna

Return from Vienna

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
