Polish artist Balthasar Klossowski de Rola (1908 – 2001), is known by his singular, classical, “erotic” subjects, choosing the figurative as a filed of expression in a time when it was largely ignored.

Find here a slideshow with some of his most important paintings presented at the last exhibition devoted to the artist at the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome.
