The Wallenberg Family Portrait

Artists Paweł Baśnik
Genre Painting
Edition Survival 16

“In spite of the huge funds spent each year by the Russian billionaire Dimitri Itskov or by Google on research into immortality, we are still equal in death. Imitating a late 19th-century relic, the destructed portrait of the former owners of the bank and palace – Carl Gideon Gotthard von Wallenberg-Pachaly and his wife Helena – serve the role of a painterly attempt to recreate the aura that used to permeate these interiors.” P.B.
