    I had been invited, with my French boyfriend and his parents, for a brief stay. Young girls fascinated Balthus as much Balthus book cats did, and he Balthus book brought them together in the same compositions. His dedication to and respect for his subjects is also apparent in the assiduous techniques with which he portrays them within formal compositions meticulously rendered. Balthus invited me to stay for a brandy after the other guests left. The gaunt figure in a Japanese vest, flannel shirt, and baggy tweed pants limped on his cane. Eight years old when she started sitting for him, she writes in an essay in the Steidl book that she was told Balthus chose her because he liked the sound of her humming Mozart.

    But then the couple conferred in Japanese. You can stare for a long time Balthus book the shadows on a wall in one of his interiors, rapt at their depth of nuance. I had scant hope that he would alter his reclusive pose for me. I also posed against such a wall—though for Setsuko, not for Balthus. Eight years old when she started sitting for him, she writes in an essay in the Steidl book that she was told Balthus chose her because he liked the sound of her humming Mozart.

    Your eye moves instantly to the point where the skirt stands ready to reveal more -- both because that's the Balthus book of erotic potential, but also because Balthus has used composition, drawn it seems from early Dutch portraiture, that draws a viewer's eyes where he wants them. He was friends Balthus book many in the Parisian cultural elite, and PicassoGiacomettiMan Rayand Breton were among his social group although he was not fond of the latter.

His accomplishments in creating tableau that were both highly composed visually and heavily evocative of extreme psychological states, even while placed in banal settings, pre-figured theatrical framings and setups by later film directors such as Alfred Hitchcock.

Balthus: Cats and Girls

Together they were a flawless composition: Balthus book cheeks a broad plane in opposition to the sharp angles of his Voltairian profile and beak of a nose. For a contemporary viewer it might elicit ruminations about how women's identities are tied to their bodies or how we use nudity as a symbol for sex, but the original buyer, Pierre Jean Jouve, thought otherwise and described the painting as "having such an intense carnality, that I considered 'Alice' as being Balthus book companion.

His paintings are full of women and girls with their bodies on display, but they meander between the erotic Balthus book a direct confrontation of his audience. In "Therese" a young girl stares languidly out of the canvas as her skirt slides up her Balthus book. She sat for him one afternoon a week from the time she was 8 until she was a teenager.

On that first occasion, as we sat side by side on an eighteenth-century sofa, he was gracious and compliant, answering all of my questions and offering numerous anecdotes.

And artists today used nudity for political purposes as well as titillation. In a letter about "Alice in the Mirror" he wrote, "I don't believe it is obscene and I think the grave, severe atmosphere it is steeped in is such that even a young girl can look at it without blushing.

A single candle on the table and the intense look on her shadowed face suggest cartomancy, an occult reading in progress. Everyone except for Baltusz, who remained spotless.

I would subsequently learn that Pierre Matisse used to spend two or three days at a time cooped up in his room at the Hotel Hassler in Rome — having breakfast, lunch, and dinner delivered by room service, even when his young wife yearned to go out if only for an hour's jaunt to a simple trattoria — while awaiting Balthus's phone calls.
