This is the first full-scale biography of one of the most elusive and enigmatic painters of our time -- the self-proclaimed Count Balthus Klossowski de Rola -- whose brilliant, markedly sexualized portraits, especially of young girls, are among the most memorable images in contemporary art. The artist´s complexities are clarified and his genius understood in a book that derives its immediacy from the author´s long and intense conversations with Balthus himself -- who never previously consented to discuss his life and work with a biographer -- as well as Weber´s interviews with the painter´s closest associates. First published by Kpf in 1999, w available for the first time from Dalkey Archive Press.
