Other highlights include Hans Memling’s great Last Judgment from Gdañsk, which has not previously been seen in the United States and will only be on view in Milwaukee. There are five of Bernardo Bellotto’s famous views of Warsaw. Also included are major Polish paintings from the last 500 years and a group of late 19th century paintings by Jewish artists. The exhibition will highlight Poland’s place in history as a meeting ground for artists and intellectuals of many nationalities; a center for rich and diverse forms of royal patronage incorporating Italian, Netherlandish and French influences.
