MetadataShow full item record
In 1757 the palace at Miodowa St. (the registration of a mortgage in the central mortgage register no. 484) became the property of Jan Karol Mniszech (died 1759), who rebuilt it. The transformations included, among others, delivery to the main body the side wing, located along Kapitulna St. The location of the palace at the representative stage deserves to be emphasized. The „Vision” prepared post fata chamberlain (łac. subcamerarius) of Grand Lithuania allows the reconstruction of the introduced functional and ideological programme. At the moment of the magnate's death some of the rooms were not yet completed. Information on the decor is specified by the “Regestr” coming from the same period, which the place of exhibition of selected objects was given in. The above documents show the character of the building, in which you can specify the sequences of functional, representative rooms, apartments of the lady and the master of the house. The analysis of rooms available to guests indicates the manner of manifesting property status and knowledge of current artistic trends. The owners` splendour was expressed in a layout and interior design parade, covering the entire first floor. The oak stairs „wschody prycypalne” with 28 degrees had the representative character. In the „room for the guests` reception” that preceded the bedroom of Katarzyna Mniszech (born Zamoyska), an oval portrait of August III was visible above the fireplace. References to the kings of the Saxon dynasty were visible, among others, on handicraft. In the goblets and tablecloths` decoration the Mniszech coat of arms could not be missing.
