Red Hair in Art: Władysław Ślewiński

Władysław Ślewiński (1856 - 1918) was a Polish painter. He was one of Gauguin's students and a leading artist of the Young Poland movement.

In his art, he concentrated on the object, infusing its materiality with the reflective sensitivity of a painter. The form and colour determined the painting's atmosphere. The artist used mainly earth colours, sometimes enlivened with stronger accents. He employed a repertoire of forms with curving contours, and painted without a drawn sketch, as was characteristic of the epoch.
