Winners of the Royal Couples Children’s Competition

'Bona Sforza and Zygmunt I' by Aleksandra Krasniewicz
Tuesday 24 May 2016

The Winners of the Children’s Competition Królewskie Pary (‘Royal Couples’) have been announced!

Alongside the exhibition Royal Marriages of Princes and Princesses in Poland and Lithuania c. 1500-1800 in the courtyard of the Royal Castle in Warsaw, the works of the winners of the children’s competition ‘Królewskie Pary / Royal Couples’, organised by the Museum of Polish History, our official partner in the HERA project, were shown from 21 April to 20 May 2016.

In the competition primary school pupils were asked to create a picture in A3 size depicting a king of the Jagiellonian dynasty or one of the Polish elected kings together with his consort coming from outside Polan. The response was outstanding: it brought in 1,820 applications from all over Poland. Therefore it was not an easy task for the jury, of whom Marrying Cultures PI Almut Bues was a member, to make a selection. The jury took into account the ingenuity, accuracy and originality of the depiction, as the attractiveness of the design and the selection of appropriate technics.

Prizes were awarded in two groups: group I (1-3 class) and group II (4-6 class).


 

In the first (younger) group the prizes were won as follows:

First prize for Bianka Hasiak, class1, Primary School in Biłgoraj for her portrait of Marysieńka and Jan III Sobieski.

 

The royal couple is seen in a rich and elaborate coronation dress typical for the period. The intense colours of the paint are highlighted effectively by means of cut paper elements.

Second prize for Judyta Kuduk, class 3, Culture House in Zamość, with Соф’я Гальшанская (Sońka) and Jogaila (Władysław Jagiełło).

 

Third prize for Anastazja Gromacka, class1, Integration School in Hajnówka, with Marysieńka and Jan III Sobieski.

 

Special prize for Oliwia Barcewicz, class 1, Integration School in Mrzeżyno, with ‘In the Queen’s Bedroom’.

 

Special prize for Wiktoria Urszulak, class 2, Primary School in Żary, with ‘Wedding Ceremony’.

 


 

In the second (older) group the prizes were as follows:

First prize for Aleksandra Krasniewicz, class 5, Integration school in Mrzeżyno, with Bona Sforza and Zygmunt I.

 

The successful chalk drawing emphasizes the basket with the vegetables that Queen Bona introduced to Poland from Italy which the royal couple are holding jointly.

Second prize for Agata Asztemborska, class 5, Primary School in Gorzów Wielkopolski, with Anna Habsburg and Zygmunt III.

 

Second prize for Aleksandra Kubicz, class 5, Primary School in Pogwizdów Nowy, with Eleonora Habsburg and Michał Korybut Wiśniowiecki.

Work in Progress Seminar

Marie-Louise Gonzague de Nevers
Monday 15 February 2016

On 19 January 2016 Helen Watanabe-O’Kelly and Ewa Kociszewska (Oxford) gave a lunchtime ‘Work in Progress’ seminar to curators and research staff at the Victoria and Albert Museum Oxford. The title was: Queens Consort, Cultural Transfer and the Potency of Objects.

Helen Watanabe-O’Kelly outlined the project’s research questions which ask in what way the consort – almost always a foreigner at her marital court – could act as either an agent, an instrument or a catalyst of cultural transfer and what role objects played in her self-presentation and self-understanding.

Ewa Kociszewska spoke about her work on Marie-Louise de Gonzague de Nevers, Queen of Poland (1611-67) and presented her as an example of a cultural encounter between east and west.

Dr Joanna Marschner from Kensington Palace, which like the V&A is one of the project’s official partners, took part in the lively discussion.
