Balthus for late arrivals
MADRID – In order to set up a large exhibition one needs international loans, to pay expensive insurance and transportation fees, and to push museums to accept partnerships or co-productions. If one misses the first phase, one can always catch up! That is the case with this exhibition of Balthus that was first shown at the Fondation Beyeler. It will then be the case for the Picasso blue and pink which just broke all attendance records at the musée d’Orsay, and which now will replace Balthus in Basel. Such a fun game of musical chairs!
• Balthus at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza from 19 February to 26 May 2019.
