MetadataShow full item record
For the audience of the 1980s in Poland, the social satire of Jerzy Duda-Gracz was a tool of psychological compensation and vicarious communication. It was blatant in the face of censorship. Those editions of Polish dialogues and Polish topics were extremely popular due to the fact that the ideal viewer as conceived by the artist coincided precisely with the actual viewers of the painting at that time. While the painting’s aesthetic value was of little importance, the artistic communication was very efficient in expressing political and social content. To the painting’s viewers, the Polish subject matter was its most important aspect.
