Beautiful polaroids (late studies) by Balthus at Gagosian Gallery
and a new Balthus show at the Met for those lucky enough to be in NYC.
Judith Thurman writes for The New Yorker blog about meeting Balthus in Rome 40 years ago and also posing for his wife (who was also a painter). Interesting! LINK
I love the paintings and drawings of Balthus, as you know if you read this blog.
P.S. Picasso owned a Balthus painting
