Balthus


Category: Painting

Balthazar Klossowski de Rola (February 29, 1908 in Paris – February 18, 2001) was an esteemed Polish/French modern artist whose work was ultimately anti-modern.

Balthus is one of the world's most distinguished artists. In his work he has always resisted the fashion of the day and remained true to traditional techniques and subjects. He is best known for his paintings of young girls on the verge of womanhood, but he is also a painter of landscapes and still life. Despite this traditionalism an element of menace haunts many of Balthus's paintings and his work has always presented something of an enigma.
