Modernist oil on fabric mounted under glass. New York City exhibition tag verso. "Contemporary Art In Poland, 1971". 30 3/4 x 21 3/4 (framed), 27 1/2 x 19 in. (work). The following was written in her obituary by The National Museum in Krakow. "Kraupe-Świderska was one of the most original Polish artists of the second half of the 20th century, though she was never a celebrity. Associated with the Krakow avant-garde, she belonged to the circles formed during the Nazi occupation in the Kunstgewerbeschule – a school for decorators founded by the Germans. Her friends included Tadeusz Kantor, Tadeusz Brzozowski, Kazimierz Mikulski, Jerzy Nowosielski. In 1957 Kraupe became a member of Grupa Krakowska [Krakow Group]. From the beginning of her artistic path, Kraupe was associated with the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts, first as a student, then as a lecturer and a professor."
