Miejsce urodzenia Fryderyka Chopina.

Chopin was born here in early 1810, but his family moved to Warsaw a few months later. However they visited from time to time.

Now it is a museum in beautiful parkland. You’ll have to wait for a moment for the link to load after the photo of Warsaw with its stadium!!

This drawing was done from a photo. I sketched the scene when we were there last month, on a magical day with perfect weather, but I did this drawing at home yesterday.

  1. This has a nice decorative quality. it is a touch Ravilious and none the worse for it! It captures something of the luxuriance of the parkland.
