Luminaries and surgeons of polish medicine

We are very pleased to share with you the unusual works of art that our Museum has acquired.

We present you over 100 caricatures of Polish scientists drawn by the famous caricature artist Grzegorz Szumowski, which are part of the publication “Luminaries of Warsaw Medicine in Caricature”, published in 2009 on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of teaching medicine in Warsaw.

Contemporary caricatures refer to the pre-war publication showing Professors and Assistants of the Faculty of Medicine, published on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the “Koło Medyków” association.

In the second gallery below you will see caricatures of famous Polish surgeons.
