Summary/Abstract: This article discusses the letters between Franciszka Themerson and Irena Grosz. The manuscripts stored in the Themersons Archive at the National Library in Warsaw and the library of the Museum of Art in Łódź are the correspondence from 1959–1979. The close relationship between the avant-garde painter Themerson and the journalist Grosz allowed, most of all, for studying the intimist writings of Franciszka and drawing attention to the autobiographical overtone of her artistic work.
