Stanisław Przybyszewski

Novelist, playwright, essayist. For some time he studied medicine and architecture in Berlin, where he edited a newspaper entitled “Gazeta Robotnicza”. He came to Kraków in September 1898, moved to Karmelicka 53, then 31. For some time he also lived in Zakopane. He edited, in collaboration with Stanisław Wyspiański, “Życie” – until the magazine’s collapse in 1900. There was an atmosphere of scandal around him resulting from his way of life (alcoholism, the eroticism of his works, the breakdown of Kasprowicz’s marriage). In 1901 he moved to Warsaw, from 1906 he lived in Munich, then in Poznań and Gdańsk 1920-1924. That year, he joined the president’s office and lived in the “Pod Blachą” Palace.
Przybyszewski adhered to modernism and promoted the slogan “art for art”. His controversial art played a large role in the cultural life of Europe. His works are “Children of Satan”, “Sons of the Earth”, “Snow” and others.
