"The lithographs presented here are taken from a collection published in 1841, entitled ‘Album of Twelve Warsaw Zinc-prints and Drawings’. The Album was created by Jan Feliks Piwarski, a custodian of the Engravings Room of the Public Library in Warsaw, a painter, a graphic artist and a teacher."

"His lithographs (and zinc-prints) mainly focused on Poland-related topics, thus making him one of the forerunners in that field. Good examples of his output are provided by the lithographs presented here, which depict familiar scenes from the 19th-c. everyday life in Warsaw."
