Catalogue Note

Having started his career in Poland, Kramsztyk spent time in Paris between 1910 and 1914 and finally settled there in 1922. As clearly visible in the present work, his art was deeply influenced by the work of Cézanne, emphasizing a certain sculptural voluminosity in his still lifes through the use of geometric shapes.
