Xavier Dunikovsky Sculpture Museum in Krulikarnia
Poland, Warsaw

The Xavier Dunikowski Sculpture Museum (a branch of the National Museum) is located in Warsaw, in the Krulikarnia Palace. The palace in the classical style was built in 1782-1786 for Carol Tomatis, Count de Valerie. The author of the project was the architect Dominic Merlini. The palace owes its name to the menagerie and hunting grounds of King Augustus II, located here in ancient times. Throughout its history, the mansion has replaced many owners. In 1794, during the Kosciuszko rebellion, the rebel headquarters was located in the palace, in 1816 it became the property of the noble Polish nobleman Mikhail Radziwill, in 1849 the collector and art lover Ksaver Puslovsky bought the palace. During the Second World War, the building was severely destroyed, its reconstruction was started in 1948 with the aim of placing in it a collection of works and the workshop of the famous Polish sculptor Xavier Dunikovsky. However, the work was completed only in 1965, a year after the death of the artist. January 26, 1965 in the palace of Krulikarnia the Museum of Sculptures named after Xavier Dunikovsky was opened. On the territory of the palace landscape park in the English style, a Sculpture Park was created, in which among the trees sculptures from the collection of the National Museum in Warsaw are exhibited, including "Adhesion of the body and soul" by Xavier Dunikowski, "Family" by Jeffrey Armstrong, "Lying" by Oldreg Turuzhinsky, " Portrait of Marina Bakuleva "by Ekaterina Belashova and others. The museum has three permanent exhibits. The collection of Xavier Dunikovsky consists of the sculptor's works, sketches, drawings, sketches, tools of the master, as well as images of Dunikovsky made by other artists. The collection of modern sculpture was created in 2001 and consists of the works of Henrik Kuhn, Eduard Wittig, Katarzyna Kobro, Jerzy Beres and other contemporary artists. The collection of ancient sculptures totals 1,190 exhibits representing all the main trends in the development of Polish and European sculpture, starting from the 16th century.
