Description  more details

"Jadwiga Turska is an artist fascinated with both the techniques used by uneducated village women who produced such marvels with their hardened work-worn fingers and also with the variety of styles existing in the different parts of Poland.

The album that she has prepared crowns her many years of painstaking research and constitutes a document of authentic folk art. The author studied items in various ethnographic collections, notably the State Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw. Her basic sources were the folk costumes worn until the first half of the twentieth century and still used in some parts of Poland. Embroideries  appeared on women’s bonnets, kerchiefs, chemises, bodices, aprons and skirts, and on men’s overcoats, jackets, waistcoats, shirts and trousers".
Wydawnictwo "Rea" Warszawa 2015, 336 pages (hard cover)
