~  Balthus (1908-2001)  ~
          Balthus, or Balthasar Klossowski de Rola, was a French painter mainly known for his controversial works of the 1930s featuring adolescent teenage girls. Stylistically his art is closely related to the Magic Realism of the day, with several ambitious works being quite complex and compelling.
