The first retrospective exhibition of Balthus in Japan since his death, held with the full cooperation of Setsuko Klossowska de Rola, who married Balthus in 1967. The exhibition will display important paintings that Japanese audiences have few opportunities to see from the collections of noted art museums, and rarely exhibited works from private collections as well.
