Augusta Kochanowska (1863 – 1927)

Augusta Kochanowska. Landschaft mit Sonnenblumen

Słownik Artystów Polskich podaje nieco inna datę urodzenia (1863 w Sadagórze) tej artystki. Augusta Kochanowska jest malarką zupełnie mi nieznaną i dlatego z przyjemnością prezentuję jej pracę.

She attended the Czernowitzer Kunstschule and studied at the Akademie der bildenden Künste in Vienna, where she also gave painting lessons. Augusta Kochanowska was very conscious of the nature and the cultural environment of her home region and she conducted her own ethnographic studies, especially on the life of the Hutsuls, which she published in the “Zeitschrift für österreichische Volkskunde” between 1898 and 1908 (e.g. Auguste Kochanowska: Bukowinaer Jahrmärkte.

  1. Przeglądając katalog wystawy dzieł sztuki w Krakowie z 1901 natknąłem się na pozycje nr 184 / KOCHANOWSKA A. Dornawatra / Huculi powracający z jarrnaiku – niestety zdjęć brak
