This striking new book depicts the career-spanning paintings, drawings, and photographs that were part of Gagosian Gallery’s 2015 Balthus exhibition in Paris. It will find an enthusiastic readership in both fans of the artist’s work, as well as admirers of 20th Century art more generally. Balthus was a reclusive painter of charged and disquieting narrative scenes, whose inspirations reach back to the early Renaissance, though with a subversive modern twist. Casting viewers as voyeurs of pubescent female subjects brooding with uneasy dreams, he scandalized Parisian audiences with his first gallery exhibition in 1934. In his interior portraits, street scenes, and landscapes of the next seventy years, Balthus cultivated a self-taught classicism as a framework for more enigmatic artistic investigations that is beautifully depicted within the pages of this new volume.Documents the first exhibition of Balthus’ work in Paris since the 1983-84 retrospective at the Centre Georges Pompidou.
