Władysław Podkowiński (February 4, 1886 - January 5 1895) was a Polish master painter and illustrator associated with the Young Poland movement during Partitions. He adopted painting as a profession after a trip to Paris in 1889, where he was profoundly influenced by French Impressionist painters. He was later credited for bringing the Impressionist movement to Poland, but his failing health inclined him toward Symbolism. He died in Warsaw at the very early age of 28 due to tuberculosis.
