Teresa Pągowska “Red Stocking“, 1970, oil on canvas, 162 x 143 cm

The painting Red Stocking was entered into the collection’s inventory under the number three. It is therefore one of the earliest works purchased with the funds of the Warsaw City Culture Department for Studio Theatre, whose new director Józef Szajna started, at the turn of 1971–72, a project to collect and exhibit the most recent art.

Initially he thought of this as a museum. New acquisitions, including Pągowska’s painting, were shown at the “Exhibition of Modern Painters” in January 1972. Teresa Pągowska was the only woman included. The other works were by Tadeusz Dominik, Stefan Gierowski, Jerzy Kałucki, Aleksander Kobzdej, Alfred Lenica, Zbigniew Makowski, Adam Marczyński, Henryk Stażewski, Jan Tarasin and Rajmund Ziemski.

In this painting Pągowska uses her own painting idiom. The fragmentarily depicted body suggests some kind of dynamically unfolding action, albeit understated. This might be a moment caught between dressing and undressing, a loving close-up, or it might merely be a stage of movement between one and gesture and another while posing for the picture.
