The Masovian Museum in Płock will open a new permanent exhibition “Art of the interwar period – art deco” on September 4. As the facility emphasizes, it will be the largest exhibition in Poland devoted to the art of the 1920s and 1930s.
The collections will be presented in a renovated tenement house.
According to the Masovian Museum, the exhibition will include, among others, residential interiors, furniture, glass, ceramics, fabrics, and lamps, as well as paintings and sculptures from the art deco period. There will also be special arrangements for a fashion house with a collection of costumes, a jewelry store with an exposed Tiffany powder box and Cartier earrings in a case, and a bank president’s office with a collection of securities and numismatic items.
“In the tenement house at 6 Kolegialna Street you will find the atmosphere of the crazy twenties of the previous century, a red convertible from 1926 and “Martwa Natura” by Tamara Łempicka. And, of course, most of the 1,800 art deco collection of the Masovian Museum in Płock,” the facility announces.
Announcing the opening of the exhibition to visitors on September 4 on its Facebook profile, it emphasizes that it is “the largest permanent exhibition devoted to art deco art in Poland”.
