poster for “Balthus: A Retrospective”

This event has ended.

Born as Balthasar Michel Klossowski de Rola, Balthus(1908-2001) is respected as one of the last great masters of the 20th century, put on par with Picasso. His silent landscapes which appear to be frozen in time and interior images inhabited by young girls, his ideal of beauty’s perfection, are filled with a mysterious tension which continues to enchant wide audiences. But with his work dispersed between collections across the globe, there have only been rare chances to see collections of his oeuvre in Japan, making this exhibition, the largest retrospective of his work since his death, of marked importance, showcasing 40 oil paintings amongst, sketches and other familiar objects.
