Jewelry Box with Jewelry
Jewelry Box with Jewelry by Polish Painter Władysław Maurycy Czachórski (1850 – 1911); who painted in the Academic Style or Academicism. A style of painting that was a fusion of both the Neoclassicism and Romanticism periods of art.
This is a richly colored and detailed genre painting of three upper class ladies admiring a beautiful long string white pearl necklace that has been taken out of its jewelry box.
The young lady in the forefront siting in the gold accented chair is holding the pearl necklace while the young women standing behind and to the left of her looks on and the other young lady looks on from across the table in which the blue-green jewelry box sits with other jewelry and necklaces laid out on a silk green cloth.
In the background is a vase containing a bouquet of red, white and pink flowers; and through a very large window we can see a grand garden.

Czachorski attended the School of Fine Arts in Warsaw in 1866 and studied under Polish Painter Rafał Hadziewicz (1803 – 1883); from there he went on to the Dresden Academy in Germany where he studied for one year and on to the Munich Academy from 1869 – 1873.
Upon completion of his studies at the Munich Academy he received Magna Cum Laude (the Grand Silver Medal), and then proceeded to travel to France Italy and Poland.
He was a member of the Berlin Academy and was an organizer and judge of international exhibitions; and in 1893 he was awarded the Order of St. Michael.
Czachórski hallmark and what he is known for, is his exquisite images of beautiful young ladies in rich elaborate interiors, painted with great detail and realism; and he has been regarded as a master at rendering fabric and jewelry.
