Biography
Polish poet, prose writer, playwright, essayist, graphic artist, sculptor, painter and philosopher. From 1831 to 1837 he studied at a Warsaw gymnasium, from which he did not graduate, then at a painting school. In 1842 he left Warsaw and went to Italy, where he began studying sculpture. In 1849 he arrived in Paris, where he maintained contacts with prominent representatives of Polish and international emigration. A love disappointment and lack of livelihood caused him to seek his fortune in New York. He tried to make a living from sculpture and drawing. In 1854 he returned to Paris permanently. In artistic circles he was known mainly as a declaimer, draughtsman and engraver (in 1868 he was admitted to the Société des Artistes). Norwid was the author of more than a dozen oil paintings, four of which survive today. An allegorical representation of a reborn Poland called "Tomorrowland" has been in the collection of the Princes Lubomirski Museum in Wroclaw since December 2007.
