Zulawski was born in Rome to Polish parents. He wrote to Borchard ‘Would you like to come to my studio and see [several self portraits]? Mornings are best for me.’
Zulawski studied at Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and won a scholarship to study in Paris. In 1936 he moved to London.
A 1946 oil painting of the body of Christ lying at the foot of the cross indicates how his work became increasingly semi-abstracted, and compassionate in tone. Later pictures depicted the cosmic dramas of Adam and Eve, and Cain and Abel, as well as working men at rest, against barren landscapes.
