Leszek Piasecki (Ukraine/Poland/Germany, 1928-1990) oil on canvas painting of a Middle Eastern marketplace. An Oriental rug trader, standing alongside several carpets, conducts business with two men in the foreground as their horses and two dogs watch on. In the background, people are sitting and talking in front of several tents. Signed Leszek Piasecki lower left. Housed in a decorative gilded frame. 26" x 46" sight, 33" x 53" framed. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Leszek Piasecki attended the School of Applied Arts and received artistic training from Stanislaw Batowski and Zygmunt Rozwadowski. Starting in 1951, he was trained by Ignacy Pienkowski, Fryderyk Pautsch, Jan Hoplinski, and Jerzy Fedkowicz. Around the same time, Piasecki became acquainted with Jerzy Kossak, the son of the Polish horse painter, Wojciech Kossak, and his future teacher. From 1956 to 1962, Piasecki worked as a graphic artist for the magazine PANORAMA, while he also established himself as a history painter. In 1974, he emigrated with his family to Austria, where he settled in Vienna and focused on depictions of battle and horse scenes. Alternate spellings: Lescek Piaseki, Leczek Piaseck. CONDITION: Light overall discoloration to varnish and a few scattered small inclusions, particularly along lower edge and upper right sky area. A couple of small areas of loss to frame molding (largest 1" x 1" at corner). Frame appears to have been regilded.
