Frenzy of Exultations[1] (Szał uniesień) is a 1894 painting by Polish artist Władysław Podkowiński, said to depict female orgasm. It was exhibited in Zachęta in an atmosphere of scandal. In 1894 it was featured in a Warsaw art exhibition; the exhibition lasted only 36 days because Podkowinski brought a knife on the 37th day and destroyed his work. The painting was restored after his death.
