Balthasar Klossowski de Rola – Balthus - 24.02.2016 – 19.06.2016

During February 24th and June 19th 2016, the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien is putting on a retrospective devoted to the work of Balthasar Klossowski de Rola, called “Balthus”. The exhibition is dedicated to his first confrontation with the quattrocento, his work in the milieu of Surrealism and Neue Sachlichkeit between France, the German speaking regions and Italy, and then the preoccupation with East Asian art in his later work. Balthus formulates himself: “I have always felt the need to search for the extraordinary in the ordinary, to suggest and not determine, always to leave something enigmatic in my pictures”.
