Lech Kalinowski (d. 2004) was one of the most eminent art historians in Poland in the twentieth century. He was a specialist in mediaeval and Renaissance art, and his scholarly interests concentrated on iconology. He began work on the Polish volume of the Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi in 1958 and for many years was the president of Polish Corpus Vitrearum. A number of his writings on glass, in English, French and German, have recently been brought together in a volume entitled Ars Vitrea: Collected Writings on Mediaeval Stained Glass. Some of the pieces are co-authored by Helena Małkiewiczówna, a Polish art historian associated with the Czartoryski Museum and the Institute of Art History at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, and author of a number of studies on Gothic monumental painting in Poland. Copies of the book are now available to order from the publishers (download the flyer on this page).
