Three Sundays in October 1934 were dedicated to Polish music and dance in celebration of the exhibition Peasant, Decorative and Graphic Arts of Poland at MAG. Organized by the International School of Art in New York City, which was founded to preserve and promote the fast-disappearing folk arts of European countries, the exhibition was said to be the first exhibition of Polish art in America.

Tadeusz Kulisiewicz was affiliated with the Warsaw Academy of Art. After spending time in the small village of Szlembark, he created a series of prints based on the mountain culture there. Mrs. James Sibley Watson, MAG’s founder and a print collector in her own right, followed her usual practice of acquiring work from exhibitions to add to the permanent collection.
