Urszula Broll (1930–2020) graduated from the Katowice branch of the Kraków Academy of Fine Arts. Her work made a major impact on post-war Polish art. She sought her own creative path as a member of two Silesian artists’ groups – St-53 and Oneiron. She explored the physical materials used in painting, worked with random effects, and engaged in a dialogue with abstraction. Her openness to experiencing the world and her quest for self-discovery enabled her to follow her own creative path. She found inspiration within her own inner self. She developed a distinctively personal artistic language using mandalas and watercolour techniques. Her most important works are records of her own internal world, and they have made a unique and original contribution to Polish art. This is the first major retrospective of Broll’s remarkable oeuvre in the Czech Republic.
