Stanisław Wyspiański (1869-1907) was a Polish renaissance man. Poet, artist, playwright, designer of stained glass - Wyspiański did it all and did it all beautifully. I have a great appreciation for his talents, but I love his paintings of children. I'm drawn to the color, patterns, roughness, and folk-like quality of the pieces, but also how he is able to capture children in vulnerable moments of play, sleep, or reflection. His paintings feel both intimate and sweet to me. They make me happy too.
