Marian Wrobel’s unusual garden


In the Jakov Vladimirov’s collection of 1000 masterpieces of chess compositions, I can’t find many recognized outstanding compositions. However, this short review is no main goal of the topic. Thanks to this forum I would like to tell us a few words about one very important person passed over in that book.
Marian Wrobel (1907-1960) was the mentor of many Polish composers. In the threemover kind, he was actively creating the basics of an interesting hybrid of Bohemian and strategic schools. Despite an obvious difficulty, thanks to his teaching, there were constantly arising new beautiful problems confirming this classical trend.
Although many composers have probably considered it as just a cul-de-sac, in reality, it seems to be an unusual locked garden.
The following problem is an outstanding work of Marian Wrobel.
