The final painting is a result of long studies on composition and colours which predetermine the meaning. The final meaning of the artwork is not always recognizable while working for the artist himself, but always felt.

The Art Of Making Art

Text.  Prof. Mauro Pratesi,  Academy of Fine Art – Florence

In the ever-changing world of contemporary art where one can more and more frequently chance on pieces that seem to have been created as a result of real research, works of a Polish painter Robert Latoś, who has been educated at the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, have an invigorating and old-fashioned touch. The charm of his paintings is astonishing, alluding to the legacy of the great Balthus.

Painting as an activity is intrinsically an act of courage and faith, meaning that one believes in this field of art in its topicality, compatibility and relevance in the context of art trends, which nowadays change so fast that in some cases a conversation about painting is construed similarly to those about archeology or forgotten, outdated customs.

Therefore it may be surprising that a young artist approaches painting with creativity and refined lyricism, and that he develops his studies of the mysterious world of that elegant, rural gentleman – count Balthasar Kłossowski de Rola, known as Balthus. It is not easy, or simply it is exquisitely difficult to rival Balthus as a painter; Balthus, a great master whose painting does not inspire anybody to imitate or interpret it, apart from mediocre epigone devoid of artistic importance.
