An exhibition of the famous painter Jan Wodyński, born in Jasło, Poland, was opened at the Herend Porcelain Museum.
Last summer the Herend Porcelain Manufactory organized a cultural exhibition displaying its porcelain items at the Jasło Regional Museum. Thanks to the excellent partnership established, the Jasło Museum has now exhibited in Herend.
The exhibition consisting of two parts, including photographs of the town of Jaslo and selected paintings by Jan Wodyński, was opened ceremonially on Friday afternoon.
The event in the porcelain town was visited by Ryszard Pabian, Mayor of Jasło. Patron of the exhibition was Jerzy Snopek, Ambassador of Poland to Hungary, represented by his wife Marta. The guests were welcomed by them as well as by Dr. Attila Simon, CEO of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory Ltd., and Mariusz Świątek, Director of the Jasło Regional Museum.
Each speaker highlighted the excellent cooperation between the two towns and museums, drawing parallels to the centuries-old Polish-Hungarian friendship, and emphasizing the exhibition’s cultural rank. The painter’s legacy is in the possession of the Jasło Regional Museum, and the most beautiful pieces have now been selected from this significant collection for Herend. The pictures of the painter and university professor as well as the special perspective photos of the town can be viewed in the ground floor exhibition halls of the Herend Porcelain Museum until September 20.
