All artists had their work auctioned by Christies Galleries in London and other leading galleries worldwide.
Janusz Szpyt is a real personality in modern polish painting. Far from leaning towards aestheticism, he paints mainly nudes, nudes not only in a literal, but also in a metaphorical sense. Because the artist shows not only the physical nakedness of his models, but also their psyche, voicing the longed-for by the philosophers truth in the process.
One could compare this individual painting to Lucien Freud’s, the grandson of the great Zygmunt and one may wonder to what extent the psychoanalysis is helpful in perception of this output. However, without doubt Janusz Szpyt’s paintings are the fruit of the superb knowledge of secrets of the painter’s technique and very attentive observation of the world.
Janusz Szpyt’s art is important at present and it will last in the future because it constitutes a link of the chain has created world heritage of painting from ancient history till nowadays and it is not a trick to become known, but it is the duration of art in time and in imagination of those, for whom all the great have been creating, Zurbaran and Goya, La Tour and Stanley Spencer among them. Namely all those, for whom the essence of artistic work has been constituted by universal and not coming under influences of time canons of art, and which we find in Janusz Szpyt’s art. Let us take a closer look at this art, also because it constitutes a rare example of the tribute to universally and understood without prejudice Humanity by the Artist.
