維拉諾夫宮

Museum of King Jan III’s Palace at Wilanow 

Hania一家帶我來維拉諾夫宮參觀,皇宮很漂亮,館藏也很精緻,皇室花園也有開放,當天風和日麗徐風習習,好舒服!

 

在花園一角竟有日本舞表演,金髮碧眼配上美麗和服,勁!

 

花園有座小小的別館,已改建為海報博物館,在紀念品店內,我發現了一本講中國文革海報的英文書,作者是位美國白人女士,文革時被北京政府邀請到中國觀摩學習,她本人也有上山下鄉,她很喜歡文革海報的鮮豔色彩、簡潔設計,搜羅了不少文革海報,返美後更撰寫專書。

此書寫得很好,我一直覺得文革海報很老土,想不到有另一種看法,有趣!

一本講中國文革的書,在美國出版,在香港、在中國都無緣得遇,偏偏遠在波蘭華沙遇上,真係太有緣啦~

Hania and her family brought me to Museum of King Jan III’s Palace at Wilanow. That is a lovely palace and the collections are beautiful. The royal garden are open to public. We have a fine weather and it just awesome!

 

There was a Japanese Dance performance in the garden. Local Polish in beautiful Japanese kimono, cool!

 

An annex was built in the royal garden and it became poster museum now. I found an English book about posters in the period of Chinese Revolution in the museum shop. The author was an American lady. She was invited by the Beijing government to visit China during the Cultural Revolution. She said she like thousands of others, had studied in the country too. She loves the bright color and simple design of the posters during Cultural Revolution and collect a lot of them and even written a book when she got back to America.

That was an interesting book. I always think the Cultural Revolution posters are old-fashion and this book inspired me a new angle.

A book about China but published in America and I havn’t seen it neither in Hong Kong nor in China but I had it in Warsaw, Poland! What a coincidences!
