Description of contents:
Andrzej Stech (1635- 1697) was a Polish painter and drawer. He gained his education in Gdansk, and since 1677 he worked for the King Jan III Sobieski (the famous hero of the Vienna’s rescue against the Turkish). Stech painted religious pictures, still lives, allegoric scenes and elaborated and detailed historical stages. He made numerous masterpieces for the Cathedral in Pelplin, besides he decorated the entrance hall in the Palace of Wilanow. He was famous of his portraits dedicated to the Polish noblemen and sovereigns. He presented very skilfully the motives of battlefield scenes, with their dynamism, the bends of the postures, with the deep caring for the relations of the tension, characters’ efforts, their mobility, collapses, etc. He took much respect to the suggestive and realistic details. A case of in point to mention here could be the picture “The Battle of Chocim” (the battle conducted between the Polish and the Turkish troops) and the pictures’ fragments in respect to the collapsed horse riders, as in our jpg’ s example above.
