The Truth Lies in Old Books (1910)
by Marian Wawrzeniecki
Polish, 1863-1943

Marian Wawrzeniecki was a Polish archaeologist, ethnographer, painter, draughtsman, and art historian from Warsaw, Poland. Wawrzeniecki’s paintings are known for their evocative imagery and often feature mystical and allegorical subjects.

The painting The Truth Lies in Old Books is a striking work that depicts a woman’s fleshy body with a skull for a head, collapsed upon an open book and gripping a bloody root. The painting’s title suggests a commentary on the search for knowledge and truth through literature and the written word, with the visual elements adding a layer of depth to this interpretation. It reflects the symbolism movement, which often explored themes of life, death, and the human condition through allegorical and sometimes macabre imagery.
