Jacek Cwetler will be giving a lecture on Wawel tapestry and middot picture MDK Czechowice-Dziedzice

The lecture will deal with the exhibition “All the King’s Furniture. Return 2021-1961-1921” at the Wawel Royal Castle. As Jacek Cwetler reveals, MDK from Czechowice is planning a trip to this fair during the holiday season. Details soon.

The historian’s lecture will tell the story of one of the most interesting and strange groups, which was founded in the sixteenth century and whose fate was very turbulent in the following centuries. It all began with Sigismund the Old, Queen Bona, and Zygmunt August, and a unique collection of more than 330 tapestries was created. The latter Jagiellon left the group to his subjects in his will. How badly Jan Kazimierz “treats” textiles, and even worse, Russian soldiers at the end of the 18th century … then Great Britain and finally Canada. The battles for the return of furnishings in the late 1950s, the return of the Bathory, etc.

These are just some of the topics that will be discussed during the lecture. It will also be about the textiles themselves, their theme, creation and preservation.
