Silesian view

View at Silesia Steelworks in Rybnik, inspired by litography from XIX century, presenting first foundry in these place (more works of Rieden and Knippel here).

The photo awarded a distinction at Gliwice City Museum contest "Silesian Views of Knippel and Rieden today". We are proud...

  1. Yes, I see how it is inspired by XIX century lithoography (thanks for the link). And you won an award for it! Congratulations.

  2. Thanks. Unfortunately, the online copy of the lithograph is rather imperfect. In fact, it is much more colourful and more details is visible.

    The photo shows the same place as lithography, but from other perspective. We tried to recreate painterly, colourful mood of the old picture, and it looks like we managed it :-)
