  Stanczyk, 1862, oil on canvas by Jan Matejko, Polish, 1838-1893. Museum Narodowe (National Museum) Warsaw, Poland. He is counted among the most famous of Polish artists for his historic and political perspectives.

 The court jester at the ball of the court of King Sigismund and Queen Bona sits in deep thought as he has just learned of the loss of Smolensk to the Russians. His brooding is about the wars against Moscow and conviction they would end in tragedy. Matejko has given the jester his own facial features.

  As the court makes merry, the jester is in misery.
