Description

    • Imported from USA.

    This album reveals Balthus’s fascination with felines and is a
    perfect complement to the Metropolitan Museum’s exhibition
    Balthus: Cats and Girls that opens in September 2013. Alain
    Vircondelet was a close friend of the late Balthus and originally
    wrote this text in intimate collaboration with the artist. He
    explains the symbolism within Balthus’s paintings and draws
    parallels between the sleepy, languishing forms of the girls and
    cats he painted. Balthus, who referred to himself as the
    Thirteenth King of Cats, regularly featured the feline form in
    his art, even as early as age nine, when he produced a story of
    his beloved Mitsou in forty Indian ink drawings. Balthus’s wife
    Setsuko and their daughter Harumi shared his deep affection for
    cats, and the family’s devotion becomes evident in this volume,
    which offers behind-the-scenes access into their home, featuring
    personal photographs, belongings, and reproductions of the
    artist’s cat paintings.
