Expression. Lviv rococo sculpture

Until October 22, 2023, the Wawel Royal Castle presents an exhibition of absolute masterpieces, a phenomenon in European art of the eighteenth century. A sculptural theatrum of moving biblical scenes by Johann Georg Pinsl. Sharply broken robes forming a tangle of geometric solids. Majestic figures captured in free yet dramatic movement. The lines of the body are dancingly bent. Faces with sharp features. Abraham, Samson, Mother of God, St. John, angels, Christ. Polychrome and gilded works of art from the church in Hodowica near Lviv have so far been shown in the Louvre in Paris, the Winter Palace in Vienna and the National Museum – Palace of the Lithuanian Dukes in Vilnius. https://wawel.krakow.pl/wystawa-czasowa/ekspresja-lwowska-rzezba-rokokowa
