The exhibition Balthus, la Retrospettiva at the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome marks the 15th anniversary of the death of the artist Balthasar Klossowski de Rola, known as Balthus.

Balthus (1908-2001) was a Polish-French artist who rejected the usual conventions of the art world and did not want to be associated with any of the art movements. His paintings often portray young girls in erotic and voyeuristic poses.

The exhibition at the Scuderie del Quirinale includes around 200 paintings, drawings and photographs, from some of the leading museums and most prestigious private collections in Europe and the United States.
