de Ropp Polish Art Collection

This website invites students of history, art, religion, and foreign affairs to explore the compelling history of Poland through this art collection on public display in the campus library since 1958.

3rd of May Constitution Day with the Syracuse Polish Home

On May 1, 2016 the Syracuse Polish Home and the Falcone Library sponsored a tour and brief talk on the art collection. This date was selected in order to celebrate the 225th anniversary of Poland's constitution (May 3, 1791), the subject of one of the seven paintings by the Brotherhood of St. Luke.

It was wonderful to see the shared enthusiasm for Polish history and the appreciation for this unique art collection here in Syracuse, New York.  

One attendee, Bob Johnson from Rochester, NY created a section on his website and a video of our visit together. Enjoy the polonaise of Michał Kleofas Ogiński.
