Franciszek Tepa (1829 - 1889)

(credits: Artur Grottger)
Polish artist Franciszek Tepa, was born at Lwów in present-day Ukraine, and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

Politically active in the Europe-wide Revolutions of 1848, Tepa was jailed as political prisoner while in Vienna. Later he produced a series of portraits of Polish leaders of the November Uprising against the foreign Partitions of Poland including Joachim Lelewel, Józef Dwernicki and Józef Chlopicki among many others

A tour of Greece, Egypt and Palestine in 1852 provided Tepa with a wealth of ‘Oriental’ inspiration. In returning to Polish Lwów in 1860, Tepa refused a Professorship at the Kraków Academy of Fine Arts to produce vernacular portraits, folk scenes and landscapes for Count Wlodzimierz Dzieduszycki, becoming well known for his miniatures painted on ivory. Many of his works remained in Lwów (present-day Lviv) when the area passed to Ukrainian control after the Second World War.
