To stand in front of originals and look at art one-to-one is always a very special experience. To keep the impressions of your visit fresh in your mind and art a presence in your daily life, too, the Fondation Beyeler offers a variety of products featuring reproductions of works from the exhibition. The selection ranges from cards, posters and notebooks to scarves, cups, glasses and more. These products are also wonderfully suited as stylish gifts for art-loving friends and relatives.
Balthus is viewed as one of the great masters of twentieth-century art, and is certainly one of the truly singular painters of his time. In his complex and multifaceted oeuvre, admired by some and spurned by others, he pursued an artistic approach that embodied an alternative, and a challenge, to modern avant-gardes. In his opposition to prevailing views, he refers to a whole range of art-historical traditions and precursors. Yet in his eccentric detachment from modernism, he developed his own specific avant-garde attitude, which now appears almost postmodern and contemporary.
