The article aims to present two previously unknown drawings by Norwid which have recently been added to the artistic legacy of the creator of Solo. The first of the discussed sketches is Portret matrony z herbem Pierzchała from 1864, which is most likely the image of Laura Czosnowska née Górska or Maria Przezdziecka née Tyzenhauz. The second drawing, showing the running old man, comes from Norwid’s sketchbook kept in the collection of the National Museum in Krakow.
