Masterpiece

Roman Opałka is the world-renowned outstanding Polish artist and author of the conception of “counted paintings”. The Museum possesses his early works created in the 1960s when he was illustrating two editions of Malay and Indonesian fairy tales: The Innocent Tiger and The Ship Turned into Stone, collected by Robert Stiller. The artist had been inspired by the Indonesian shadow theatre and the stone carvings of Borobudur.
