Tytus Czy ewski was a Polish painter, Futurist poet, playwright, and Colorist. In 1917, together with the brothers Zbigniew and Andrzej Pronaszko, he organized an exhibition of Polish Expressionist works in Krakow, and their group later became known as the Polish Formists. They merged various aspects of the European avant-garde including Cubism, Futurism, and Expressionism. Until the group’s break-up in 1922, Czyzewski was their primary artist and theoretician as well as the joint editor of the journal Formisci. He was also a co-founder of the Polish Futurist clubs and published Futurist-inspired visual poetry. As of December 2017, WorldCat locates six holdings in North America. Book ID: 48775
