Epitaph plaque of Ludwik Bełtowski

Catalogue note author
Maria Działo


The epitaph plaque located in the chancel of the Church of Saint Catherine in Nowy Targ was made in 1902-1904 by Juliusz Wojciech Bełtowski (1852-1926), a well-known sculptor, painter, medalist, woodcutter and goldsmith. The deceased is extremely reminiscent of the creator's physiognomy. Considering this premise and the coincidence of names, it can be assumed that Ludwik was the father of Julius or someone close to his family, which, however, has not yet been included in the artist's biography and requires final confirmation by genealogical research.
