IRSA Fine Art is involved in the promotion of Polish art both in Poland and abroad. We offer works of leading Polish artists
representing a wide spectrum of schools and tendencies from the 1960s and 1970s to the present (including matter painting, art
informel, lyrical and geometric abstraction, New Realism etc.). We also have works by artists of classic post-war Polish art

particular artist and his or her works into as close a focus as is possible.
Currently in preparation are exhibitions of the works of Wojciech Fangor, Jan Lebenstein, Adam Myjak and of the foreign artists,

galleries abroad, just as was done, for example, in the Tarasewicz show in Milan and as will shortly be done in the show in
London, currently being planned, of the sculptor Bronis³aw Krzysztof.
IRSA Fine Art's most recent large scale project is an exhibition of the sculpture and drawings of the splendid Alina
Szapocznikow, with a catalogue raisonné of the artist's drawings, until now never edited.
IRSA Fine Art, although formally established only in 2003, has taken over the joint exhibition activities of the
IRSA Research Institute
and the Polish Auction House SZTUKA.
Thus the gallery is able to draw upon the experience of its owner, Dr Józef
Grabski, acquired over the many years he has spent in the art field. Dr Grabski has now been in the international art market for
almost thirty years without a break, working as a respected authority on art, including modern art, and as a dealer. He is also
a collector. From the beginning of the 1980s, he has co-created or provided advice on the creation of many international
collections, both for private individuals and for institutions; among these are the Barbara Piasecka Johnson Collection (Johnson
& Johnson, New Jersey, USA), H. Abel Collection in Munich, the Gordon Collection in London, and the Meyer Collection in Zurich.
