Władysław Strzemiński

Władysław Strzemiński (21 November 1893, Minsk – 28 December 1952, Łódź) was a Polish avant-garde painter of international renown.

During the 1920s he formulated his theory of Unism (Unizm in Polish). His Unistic paintings inspired the unistic musical compositions of the Polish composer Zygmunt Krauze. He is an author of a revolutionary book titled "The theory of vision."

In postwar Lodz he was an instructor at the Higher School of Plastic Arts, where one of his students was Halina Ołomucki, survivor of the German concentration camps.[1]
