Tadeusz Was. TWO FIGURES

Lot 593. TADEUSZ WAS (POLISH 1912 – 2005), TWO FIGURES mixed media on board, signed 39cm x 33cm Framed. Estimate 300 – 500 GBP. Opening 180. GBP. McTear’s. 02/28/21

Tadeusz Was (w zasadzie Tadeusz Wąs) to kolejny uratowany cudem z Rosji bolszewickiej. Artysta o bogatym życiorysie i pasji artystycznej. Ani jednej jego pracy nie spotkałem na aukcjach w Polsce w ostatnich 30 latach lecz wiele można spotkać na moim blogu. Ciekawa jest jego własna technika ‘soot cut’, prace wykonane w technice czarno białej. Ludwika Klimka potrafiłem rozpropagować na blogu, gorzej widzę jest z Tadeuszem Wąsem.  https://collectart.co.uk/artist/48-was-tadeusz/.

Olej Tadeusza Wasa (właściwie Wąsa) z roku 1964. Bardzo nowoczesna w formie w tamtym czasie a artysta w Polsce wcale ‘nie uważany’. Nie znalazłem anii jednej jego pracy zarestrowanej na aukcjach w polskich domach aukcyjnych w ostatnich 20 latach.

Tadeusz Was. Allegory

Tradycyjnie popieram polskich artystów, pracujących na emigracji, zapomnianych lub nie prezentowanych w Polsce, na których nie da się zarobić pieniędzy a których prace są warte pokazania. Tadeusz Was z jego oryginalną techniką (soot cut) zdecydowanie należy do nich.

NB: Story has it that the process of sootcut was discovered by Tadeusz Was who was stationed in the desert in World War II, he apparently held orange peel over a burning oil lamp and the resulting soot produced formed a perfect impression when in contact with paper.

Was-626

Moim zdaniem jest to najlepsza praca Tadeusza Wasa z tej serii  aukcyjnej. Może dlatego, że jest to reportaż żołnierza spod Monte Cassino.

Lot 626. Tadeusz Was (Polish, 1912-2005) – ‘Italy 1944’ (depicting three soldiers) Black ink on paper, signed and titled, approx 18x28cm, framed. NB: This will almost certainly be a scene of the battle of Monte Cassino of which Tadeusz was involved. Tadeusz not only fought in the Polish Army but also acted as war correspondent, he would be involved in the day to day battles and at the end put down his rifle and pick up his artistic instruments and aproduce work such as this.
