Gentleman of the Courts: Fibak's Art

Inspired by the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters (congratulations to Stan Wawrinka), let's turn to a Polish tennis legend Wojciech Fibak: winner of the Australian Open (1978), as well as Monte Carlo Masters (1976) and Swiss Open Gstaad (1985), just to name one of the most prestigious. Besides being a former tennis star, he is also a passionate collector of Polish art and owner of the Fibak Gallery, inter alia. His collection comprises above all works of the XX century. Here are some insights into a post-sportsman world:

"Portrait of the composer Edgar Varese with his wife" Mela Muter, 1924
There is a very particular reason why I love this particular painting.

"Woman with rabbit" Eugeniusz Zak, 1920/1921

"Romantic landscape" Zygmunt Menkes, 1926

"The dance" Leopold Gottlieb, 1934

"Don Quixote" Stanisław Eleszkiewicz, 1960

P.S. Wawrinka's grandfather was Polish. Just by the way..
