Lofty says:

The Galkowski tapestries often seem to take medieval themes and put a decidedly mid-century twist on them. This theatrical scene is no exception, populated as it is with more modern elegant long-necked figures in 16th century style dress. The Polish government was proud of Galkowskis’ work and gifted many of their large tapestries to friendly foreign governments. Many are in important museum collections. The Art Institute of Chicago has an example of a “Teatr” tapestry. At over 10 feet long, this wall covering would make a big statement and add some warmth and humor to a large mid-century style room or reception area. - Ursula LeBaron
