Balthus

Through January 1, 2019
Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel
www.fondationbeyeler.ch

The Fondation Beyeler brings together more than fifty important paintings by Balthus from every phase of his oeuvre. The starting point of the show is his monumental painting Passage du Commerce-Saint-André (1952–54), which epitomizes the artist’s intensive engagement with the dimensions of space and time in the image, and with their relationship to figure and object.
