Summary/Abstract: The study of „Post–war monumental work of Xawery Dunikowski 1945-1964’’ analyses complex issues of late monumental art of this doyen of native sculpture, the process of its formation in reality of a Polish communist state, as well as formal and thematic quality. The monographic presentation of three main works: Monument to the Uprising on St. Anna’s Mountain (1946-1955), Monument to the Liberation of the Warmia and Mazury Region in Olsztyn (1949-1954) and designs for the Monument to the Heroes of Warsaw (1956-1958), it completes a panoramic overview of his other monuments from that time. A multi-aspect look at Dunikowski’s final monumental creation does not offer unequivocal answers, but a rich overview of this diverse art of the authorship of the outstanding personality of a multi-epochal artist. The dissertation reminds about this unique creation, it describes its precisely, contextualizes and reinterprets.
