Summary/Abstract: More and more seems to indicate that a return of the category of loftiness can be the object of interest for an historian dealing with Polish contemporary art and that the concept in question continues to assume ever new contents here and now. Naturally, the present-day reoccurrence of loftiness takes place against the backdrop of the astonishing worldwide career enjoyed by the titular concept in recent decades. The author of the article, which is a brief review of assorted current artistic realisations conducted from a sublimicising viewpoint, ponders the course and formula in which this category renders its presence known in art and pertinent statements. Apparently, on the Polish contemporary scene loftiness returns in a specific edition vividly tinted with the intuition of a catastrophe.
