Born in 1908, Balthus (Count Balthazar Klossowski de Rola), the acclaimed Polish-Swiss painter, is one of the 20th century's finest artists. A reclusive, enigmatic, and self-taught genius who has always followed his own unique vision, Balthus remains faithful to his favorite themes: brooding landscapes, haunting portraits of adolescent girls, and intriguing studies of all-knowing cats. In a rare interview at the Grand Chalet in Rossiniere, Balthus looks back over his long life; reflects upon his relationships with Picasso, Giacometti, and Rainer Maria Rilke; discusses his love for children; and reveals his feelings about aging, eroticism, and psychoanalysis. Magnificent shots of Balthus' paintings and comments by those closest to him--his wife and son, recent and former models, friends and collaborators--cast light on the artist as husband, father, and extraordinary man.
