DESCRIPTION OF WORK:
I am a man sick of Poland," said Jerzy Duda-Gracz about himself. Thus, in his art, he painted the homeland, its landscapes and its inhabitants through the prism of the grotesque, focusing on the peasant and working class, eagerly depicting certain social myths, such as the ethos of the Polish Mother.
The work on offer depicts the eponymous winter stroll of two women turned away from each other: pictured in the foreground, dressed in a tasteful coat with a fur collar, a businesswoman leading a dog, and a naked pregnant Polish Mother with her face turned away from the viewer, located slightly behind. The background is a landscape of a snow-covered field with a forest stretching in the distance.
Jerzy Duda-Gracz based his composition on contrasts - tight clothing and nudity, pride and shyness, wealth and poverty. The businesswoman, a successful woman, although dominant in the painting, seems to be an evil character, followed like a specter by her parent, who grows out of poverty and is strong despite the coldness of nature and the other man around her. She is the heroine and the future.

The biography of Jerzy Duda-Gracz is available on the website of Krakow Auction House [SEE].
