Tyszkiewicz Palace, Warsaw
Pałac Tyszkiewiczów w Warszawie (Polish)
|Town or city||Warsaw|
|Design and construction|
|Architect||Jan Chrystian Kamsetzer|
It is one of the most beautiful neoclassical structures in the city.
The palace was built by Field Hetman of Lithuania, Ludwik Tyszkiewicz. Construction began in 1785, initially to plans by Stanisław Zawadzki, and was finished in 1792 in Neoclassical style to a design by Jan Chrystian Kamsetzer.
In 1840 the palace was bought by the Potocki family.
In the interwar period, it was home to Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego and later to the Polish Academy of Literature.
The palace's relatively modest west façade, on Krakowskie Przedmieście, is embellished with some fine stuccowork, and the central balcony is supported by four elegant stone Atlantes carved in 1787 by André Le Brun.
