Olga Boznańska (1865-1940) was one of the most distiguished painters of the so called Young Poland period (roughly 1890-1918). Her style blended impressionist and realist tendencies - she is believed to be primarily influenced by the art of James McNeil Whistler, Edouard Manet and Wilhelm Leibl. Boznańka is mostly known for her intimate, expressive portraits, but her oevre also contains landscapes, interior scenes and still lifes.
