9780500091555: Balthus

"From time to time, amidst all the trials and errors, it happens: I recognize what I was looking for. All of a sudden the vision that preexisted incarnates itself, more or less intuitively and more or less precisely. The dream and the reality are superimposed and made one." —Balthus

Published to document Gagosian Gallery’s 2015 Balthus exhibition in Paris, this striking new book depicts the beautiful paintings, drawings, and photographs that were part of that career-spanning exhibition, the first of Balthus’s work in Paris since the 1983–84 retrospective at the Centre Georges Pompidou. Vibrant color reproductions of the artist’s interior portraits, street scenes, and landscapes, along with striking installation shots, present the self-taught classicism that Balthus cultivated as a framework for his more enigmatic artistic investigations. A conversation between Olivier Zahm and Setsuko Klossowska de Rola completes the catalogue, providing an insightful look into the world of this reclusive painter of charged and disquieting narrative scenes.

About the Author:

Olivier Zahm is the cofounder and editor in chief of Purple Fashion. He is an accomplished photographer and has curated exhibitions at art institutions worldwide.

Internationally exhibited Japanese painter Setsuko Klossowska de Rola is the widow of Balthus and the honorary president of the Balthus Foundation.

From Booklist:

Balthus is almost as famous for his reclusiveness and reluctance to divulge personal information as for his provocative paintings of young women, a fact his eldest son addresses with some pique in his introduction to this superb volume, the most extensive collection of his father's lustrous and enigmatic work yet published. Klossowski de Rola defends Balthus' insistence on privacy, then offers a few tantalizing biographical facts and a set of striking photographs of the artist. Readers are free, then, to study and interpret Balthus' intriguing, unsettling, brilliantly stylized, richly textured, and strongly composed street scenes, portraits, still lifes, and landscapes. His most famous paintings date from the 1930s and 1940s and feature, in his son's words, "languid adolescent" girls, images Klossowski de Rola insists are "untouchable archetypes of purity," but which are clearly erotic works of the highest order. Balthus, nearly 90 and still working, is a profoundly sensual painter, both in his handling of paint and in his subject matter. What's "pure" and magnificent here is the artist's sense of eroticism and immense talent. Donna Seaman
