Girl at a Window

Balthus (Balthasar Klossowski) French

Not on view

A wide-open window gives onto a bright, half-concealed landscape around the château de Chassy, a former fourteenth-century farmhouse in Burgundy that Balthus bought and renovated late in his life. The young girl gazing out the window is Frédérique Tison (born 1938), his favorite model at the time.
