A richly illustrated catalogue, accompanying the exhibition organized by IRSA in Cracow on the occasion of the fiftieth birthday of Stasys Eidrigevičius — a celebrated Polish contemporary artist of Lithuanian origin. In the introduction, critical essays by the most prominent Polish and foreign art critics create a background to the sections that follow, presenting all of the many aspects of Stasys' artistic work. Each of the chapters, opened by the artist's own text, is entirely devoted to one area of his activity. Additionally, an attempt has been made to take inventory of the artist's output in several fields of his activity. As a tailpiece to the catalogue, documentary sections in photography, ex-libris, graphics, poster and book art illustrate every item with a small photo and accompanying details.
