Spirit of Polish Nation celebrated in exhibition at Louvre-Lens

Poland will have its exhibition at the Louvre-Lens in northern France, as the exhibition Poland 1840-1919: Portraying the Spirit of the Nation will open on September 25.

The Polish National Museum in Warsaw together with the Louvre-Lens Museum and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute is organising an exhibition dedicated to the history of Polish art of the 19th and the early 20th century.

The exhibition will concern the issue of Polishness and Polish national identity during the era of partitioned Poland, which lasted from 1795 to 1918.

According to Agnieszka Rosales Rodríguez, Ph.D the French museum is most interested in presenting the role and meaning of art in a nation which had no state, divided into three parts.

The exhibition marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of an agreement on migration between the two countries. It will be open for visitors until January 20, 2020.
