  history of the painting

The diorama describing the battle of Rac³awice has had a long and troubled history, which is explained on this stone at the entrance of the building. So, I will start with the translation of the inscription:

RACLAWICE PANORAMA
Painted in Lvov in 1894
on the hundredth anniversary
of the Kosciuszko Insurrection
by
JAN STYKA and WOJCIECH KOSSAK
Ludwik Boller, Tadeusz Popiel
Zygmunt Rozwadowski and others
Damaged during the war in 1944
Transferred to Wrocław in 1946
Restored with the effort of the society
GIVEN BACK TO THE NATION IN 1985


The panorama remained unknown until the end of the communist regime in Poland. You can easily understand that the regime didn't want the world to know that the Poles had defeated the Russian army. Today, people from all Polish regions and from foreign countries (especially from the USA, the UK and France) visit it every day.
