Feliks Michał Wygrzywalski (born November 20, 1875 in Przemyśl, died September 5, 1944 in Rzeszów) - Polish painter. His son, Feliks Kazimierz Wygrzywalski, was also a painter. Feliks Michał Wygrzywalski thanks to a scholarship from the Foundation. Malinowski studied in the years 1893–1898 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, and then at the Académie Julian in Paris and Italy. In 1900 he moved to Rome, where he married an Italian woman, Rosa Imassa. In Rome, he initially copied works by Caravaggio, Raphael, Guercino, Velázquez and Titian. He also painted landscapes and nudes. He provided illustrations for the Polish weekly "Wędrowiec" and for German and Russian magazines. In 1906 he went to Egypt, where he created many paintings with oriental themes, especially harem scenes. In 1908, he returned to Lviv, where he was commissioned to decorate the walls of the Lviv Chamber of Industry and Commerce. He also took up theater scenography. During World War I he lived in Russia. In Rostov-on-Don he became a professor of drawing. He returned to Lviv in 1918. He participated in many painting exhibitions, in 1932 he had an individual exhibition at the Society of Friends of Fine Arts in Lviv. Commissioned by the health resort in Krynica, he created a series of fourteen paintings for the Lwigród sanatorium, devoted to the history of dance. He was a conservative artist, not influenced by the avant-garde trends of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He had his own Art Salon in Lviv, located at ul. Akademicka 23 and was called "Kunstaustellung". Not only Feliks Michał Wygrzywalski, but also other artists, exhibited and sold their paintings in "Kunstaustellung". Paintings left at the consignment shop by outsiders were sold there. The difficult living conditions at that time forced many to give up even works of art in order to earn money for living. In July 1944, he left Lviv to escape from the Red Army. He evacuated west, leaving all his property in Lviv. He traveled on a wagon from which he fell and suffered an injury (which, according to his relatives and friends, was the cause of his death). He stayed in Rzeszów - he lived and painted in a tenement house at ul. Grunwaldzka 6. He did not survive the cerebral hemorrhage there. He was buried on September 7, 1944 at the Rzeszów-Pobitno cemetery (District IX, Row 6, Grób 11). The burial was performed by Fr. Karol Jendyk from the parish church in Rzeszów. At the turn of the 1970s and 1980s, another family tomb was built on his grave (and several neighboring ones), but his grave no longer exists.
