Zdzisław Beksiński (paintings)

Zdzisław Beksiński 24 February 1929 – 21 February 2005) was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and sculptor. Beksiński executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a 'Baroque' or a 'Gothic' manner. The first style is dominated by representation, with the best-known examples coming from his fantastic realism period when he painted disturbing images of a surrealistic, nightmarish environment.  The second style is more abstract, being dominated by form, and is typified by Beksiński's later paintings.  Beksiński was murdered in 2005.
