Balthus

In stock (1000 items available)
In his multifaceted, multilayered oeuvre Balthus (1908-2001), one of the last great twentieth-century masters, pursued a path that ran exactly contrary to the modern avant-garde movements. The Fondation Beyeler’s retrospective unites around forty significant paintings from all phases of this legendary artist’s career, reflecting the ambiguous presentation of his imagery. The exhibition and its companion catalogue begin with the monumental, enigmatic masterpiece, Passage du Commerce-Saint-André (1952-54), in which Balthus’s intensive study of the dimensions of space and time and their relationship to figure and object is especially apparent.
