An exhibition about Artur Szyk (1894-1951), a world-renowned artist of miniatures, caricatures, and book illustrator. He was the creator of illustrations, among others to the "Statute of Kalish", "The Haggadah", many biblical miniatures, fairy tales e.g. by Hans Christian Andersen, as well as anti-Nazi caricatures known as "The New Order".

Artur Szyk (1894-1951) was born in Łódź, on June 16, 1894. He was one of the most interesting and surprising artists of pre-war Łódź. In art history he is primarily known for having been a master of miniatures and author of anti-fascist posters. He illustrated, among others "The Haggadah", "Book of Esther", "Song of Songs" or "Statute of Kalisz", where in 45 pages he presented miniatures on Polish-Jewish history starting from the 13th century when Jews in Poland were granted the Kalisz Statute by Prince Bolesław the Pious, a privilege that defined their legal status up to modern times.
