„Over the past 25 years I have explored more than fifty collections in America featuring Polish paintings. Each of them is different but they are all equally valuable, whether large, comprising several hundred canvases worth millions of dollars, or small with no more than a dozen or so works." — Czeslaw Czaplinski.

„Czesław Czapliński’s album discloses to us treasures that have long been kept hidden. Accumulated over years, these collections have until now gladdened the eyes of the collectors and their close circles only. Thanks to the author’s passion and persistent efforts we can feel almost like discoverers of terra incognita. At the same time we should be aware that we are experiencing a unique initiation by being ushered into the collectors’ intimate worlds. Frequently tangled and knotty, the fortunes of people and institutions loom in the background of the collections. This publication has one more effect that cannot be overestimated: it changes the stereotypical image of a Pole in America, who no longer dreams of a better life on the other side of the Atlantic, but actually and beautifully lives one“.
—Ferdynand B. Ruszczyc —Director, National Museum in Warsaw

“Czeslaw Czaplinski traced painstakingly Polish art collections across the U.S.A. To the astonishment of many of his compatriots, he proved that works demonstrating outstanding value and greatly enhancing our awareness of Polish artistic heritage could be found overseas too. All credit to the author for that”.
—Prof. Marek Kwiatkowski — Director, Royal Łazienki Museum, Warsaw
