In collaboration with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Polish Cultural Institute, Tate Britain is showing a group of works by Polish Symbolist artists alongside paintings by their British contemporaries exploring the relationship between the two schools around 1900. The display features a selection of works that have been lent from public and private collections in Poland.

This is the first time there has been an exhibition on the subject of Polish art at Tate and the display launches the Polska!Year in the UK. Artists include Edward Burne-Jones, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Alfred Gilbert, Stanisław Wyspiański, Józef Mehoffer, Witold Wojtkiewicz and Jacek Malczewski.

Organised by Tate Britain in collaboration with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw, and launches Polska!Year
