Halina Korn-Żuławska (1902–1978), a painter, sculptress, author of memoirs Holidays End in September is completely unknown in Poland, though many of her works are housed in the National Museum in Warsaw and in museums and private collections all over the world. Introduced as an artist from the circle dubbed naive she completely escapes that classification. The works of Halina Korn (she signed them that way), thanks to her sensitivity and intuitive sense of colours, despite sometimes lacking in workshop (being rather her asset) aims towards conscious, mature simplicity. After World War II she lived in London, where thanks to her husband—Marek Żuławski (also a painter) she entered the artistical environment there, mainly the Polish part. During her stay in Paris in 1950, she saw the current exhibitions, sketched a lot and met with the owners of the Parisian galleries, trying to organise (without success) her own exhibition. In her vast correspondence with her husband, being a kind of Paris journal 1950 she describes Polish artistic circles in Paris and sketches the silhouettes of Karol Sterling, Roman Palester, Ludwik Lille and others.
