DescriptionSon of an art teacher, born in Eastern Poland, he studied art in Krakow. Like many Polish artists, went to Paris where he lived for 4 years until joining the Polish army in 1939 and reached Scotland in 1940. Moved to London in 1944 with his English wife and exhibited successfully with Roland Browse and Delbanco for many years.
Ruszkowski is the best recorded of the Polish artists, thanks to Simonow, an ardent collector of his paintings who also published a book on him. He escaped to this country during the second world war
