On 29 November 2022 at 7pm Berlin time, Emilia Kłoda will speak about the collections of Prince Lubomirski. Prince Henryk Lubomirski’s collection became the bedrock of the first public museum in Polish Lviv (nowadays Ukraine). Henryk Lubomirski (1777-1850) was a member of a rich and influential aristocratic family and he was raised among cosmopolitan art lovers.

His journey through Europe with Izabela Czartoryska and Stanisław Kostka-Potocki is an interesting example of the 18th-century education “on the road”. Henryk Lubomirski was a well-educated gentleman, art collector and political activist. In 1823, he decided to support Józef Maksymilian Ossoliński in the creation of the Polish cultural institution in Lviv.

Emilia Kłoda is an art historian currently working in the Museum of the Lubomirski Princes at the Ossoliński National Institute in Wrocław. She has contributed to many research projects, e.g.“Virtual Museum of Baroque Ceiling Paintings in Silesia”, “Baroque Painting in Silesia” at the University of Wrocław, and “Scientific infrastructure for art-historical monuments in East Central Europe” at the Herder Institute in Marburg. In 2017, she received her PhD from the University of Wroclaw. Since 2018, she has been the curator of the Old Masters’ Drawings collection and the Paintings collection in the Museum of the Lubomirski Princes.
