The Vincas Kisarauskas collection shows documents relating to the creative work and life of the famous Lithuanian painter Vincas Kisarauskas. He is a well-known proponent of the Lithuanian school of ex-libris, and the collection contains originals of his works.
Wojciech Zamecznik's collection represents the early stage of Polish school of poster design. Zamecznik himself has an interesting biography - ex-Auschwitz prisoner, active member of Association of Polish Artists and Designers, who created posters for artistic and political purposes. The collection shows the tension between the official language of socialist posters and private photographs, more intimate and portraying the everyday life.
