Description
 
'The Polish folklore - that is beliefs, religious practices, everyday and festive customs, crafts, clothes, music , dances and other rituals typical of the peasant culture and rural life - started to evolve much faster and show distinct regional differences in the nineteenth century. This was when scholars and artists alike took a keen interest in it. Professional artists developed the deepest fascination with folklore in the late nineteenth and the early twentieth century, when Stanislaw Witkiewicz, inspired by the traditional architecture and decorative art of the Podhale region, created the so-called Zakopianski style, and when painters (such as Stanislaw Wyspianski, Jozef Mehoffer, Wlodzimierz Tetmajer, Kazimierz Sichulski, Apoloniusz Kedzierski) frequently depicted scenes from rural life."   Christina Parma has done a superb job in capturing magnificent highlights of Polish folklore from the south of Poland including Krakow and Zakopane.
