Three of the landscapes are of mountains (one depicts the pond Morskie Oko /Eye of the Sea/ in the Carpathian Mountains). There is a painting of the destroyer ORP “Błyskawica” (Lightning). Among the portraits is one of PRCUA’s President, Joseph L. Kania (canvas, oil); another of the first Director/Curator of the Museum, Miecislaus Haiman (paper, chalk); and of Casimir Pulaski (oil).
