"Zdzislaw Beksinski won our imagination and the hearts of everyone - the public and the critics," Zacheta Gallery director Agnieszka Morawinska told PAP.
Though Beksinski depicted foreboding, dark images, he always resisted attempts to analyze their meaning.
"It misses the point to ask me what my paintings mean," he once said. "Simply, I do not know myself. Moreover, I am not at all interested in knowing."
