On exhibition you will be able to see the most famous paintings, as well as artworks created by artists still undiscovered to the general public, including, e.g. Franciszka Themerson and Helena Berlewi, artists with very interesting artistic biographies.
Works of art of Gottlieb, Menkes and Muter are the most beautiful artistic traces of lost spirituality of Polish Jews. Openness in perception of philosophical dilemmas and world around them brought wonderful results in the form of universal and timeless art that gained recognition in the past and today.

– Wejman Gallery - Gallery of Art from the 20th century
Based on the experience acquired since 2004, relevant to implementations for collectors, galleries and cultural institutions, Wejman Gallery presents the most interesting phenomena of Polish art of the 20th century. The profile of the Gallery significantly focuses on Polish artists of Jewish descent who had a great importance in the art world, among them are Mela Muter, Leopold Gottlieb and Roman Kramsztyk. One of our greatest achievements was discovering and bringing to Poland in 2009 artworks created by Bolesław Biegas, the group of nearly 170 paintings and sculptures. This outstanding art collection was presented in 2009-2014 as a deposit in specially created exhibition space in the Mazowieckie Muzeum in Plock. From 2015 the collection found its place in newly established Museum of Bolesław Biegas in Warsaw.
