Why We Love This

Vanished Splendors: A Memoir: Balthus by Balthasar Klossowski, et al. New York: Harper Collins, 2002. First printing. The great master, Balthus, in conversation with Alain Vircondelet, who has created the closest we will get to an autobiography, apart from Balthus's paintings. After a lifetime of secrecy, he speaks for the first time about his family, work, his theories of art and its intersection with history, literature, and spirituality. Hardcover, with remainder mark on bottom edge.
