Adam Międzybłocki

Born on 4 April 1883 in Grishkancy near Vilnius, died on 3 August 1956 in Gdansk. Circa 1899, he attended the Vilnius Drawing School. From 1908 to 1913, he studied at the Cracow Art Academy under painters Teodor Axentowicz and Leon Wyczółkowski, and his works from that period won several awards. At the turn of 1913 and 1914, he left for the Caucasus and lived there until the end of World War I. In 1919, Międzybłocki lived in Warsaw, and circa 1922, returned to Vilnius. He was a member of the Vilnius Artists’ Society (Towarzystwo artystów Plastyków). At the end of 1945, he settled in Gdansk. He mostly painted landscapes in watercolour, depicting the views of Vilnius, Cracow, Tiflis, Warsaw and Gdansk, and their historical architecture. He published a collection of postcards with views of Vilnius and Druskininkai.
