Contemporary art history deals not only with the interpretation of the works themselves, but also largely with reinterpreting its own research methods. The latest “Quart” brings a series of studies that fit into this vital and necessary trend. Thanks to this, old works gain a new meaning dimension, and the more con- temporary art – the next interpretative face. This is what happens both in the text of Łukasz Kiepuszewski, where the author, examining the creative process of Piotr Potworowski, situates his painting in the context of the philosophical trend known as the New Phenomenology, and in the paper by Michał Haake, in which Ferdynand Ruszczyc’s paintings gain a new semantic quality due to their inclusion in the trend of the evolu- tionist theories that was so XIX-century-like in their essence. Next texts familiarize us with the areas that are closer to us in time, starting with reflection on Jan Cybis’ painting (Janusz Antos), through the story of “Five Faces of Mona Lisa”, that is about the beginnings of conceptual art in Wrocław (Sylwia Świsłocka-Karwot), to also a Wrocław theme which is the artistic poster created here in the times of the Polish People’s Republic (Dorota Miłkowska). The whole is crowned with the paper about the issue of audio description, so important regarding the popularization of art (Aneta Pawłowska, Anna Wendorff). I invite you to read and let us follow the maxim derived from the writings of Ahab Hassan: “The unimaginable lies somewhere halfway between the Kingdom of Complacency and the Sea of Hysteria”. It is worth remembering it, especially in the spring.
