Balthus (1908 - 2001) is viewed as one of the great masters of twentieth-century art. In his complex and multifaceted oeuvre, he pursued an artistic approach that embodied an alternative, and a challenge, to modern avant-gardes.
The exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler, realized with the generous support of the artist's family, is curated by Dr. Raphaël Bouvier (Curator) and Michiko Kono (Associate Curator). It will subsequently be shown at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid.
