The opening of the Permanent Exhibition of the Lanckoroński Miniatures.

On July 8th 2016 in Wrocław the Lanckoronski Foundation gave the Ossolineum forty three miniatures from the former collection of the Counts Lanckoroński. Those paintings comprise objects from the 17th to the 19th century and provide a fine example of a family collection showing not only portraits of ancestors but also famous historical figures, painted by excellent artists. On September 23rd 2016 these gifts went on public display in a permanent exhibition housed in the Ossolineum’s Pan Tadeusz Museum.

The collection of the 43 Lanckoroński miniatures – the illuminated manuscripts to which the brochure refers are displayed in the drawers.

The collections are displayed in a room designed to create the appearance and atmosphere of a 19th c. library.
