The Music (sculpture)
|The Music Group|
The Music (also known as The Music Group, Polish: Muzyka, Grupa Muzyka) is one of three sculptures located on the roof of the building on Koszykowa Street 34/50 in Warsaw since 1952. The project was chosen after an artistic competition. The monument was designed by Józef Gosławski, but his wife - Wanda - and his brother - Stanisław - helped him with its realization because of the short deadline. Lack of scaffolds, problems with obtaining funds and the short deadline forced the artists to write a letter to the chief architect of Warsaw - Józef Sigalin. After that, the conditions were improved and work was completed on time.
- Except Music there are also Fine Arts and Theatre groups.
- Except Józef Gosławski sculptures in new Warsaw district were designed by Kazimierz Bieńkowski and Leon Machowski.
