Happy Birthday Cyprian K. Norwid!! Polish painter, sculptor, poet and dramatist, Norwood was born near Warsaw in 1821. One of his ancestors on his mother’s side was a king. He lived many places, including London, Paris and even the US for a time. Considered a Romantic, he was quite well known for his poetry. He lived in poverty his entire life. The work I am including today is a bronze relief, sculpted for the Wawel Cathedral in Krakow.
