Balthus: A bit creapy but still pretty cool!





Hisaji Hara, A study of the “Katia Reading”
“In his staged tableaux, Hara appropriates the subjects featured in Balthus’ canvases, but with a setting and costuming that are uniquely Japanese.'A photographic portrayal of the paintings of Balthus' was made over a period of five years beginning in 2006. In 2010 he received first prize at the Yokohama Photo Festival for the work.”
