Balthus by Sabine Rewald( Book )

31 editions published in 2001 in 4 languages and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Balthazar Klossowski, known as Balthus, is largely regarded as one of the twentieth century's most important painters - as well as the most scandalous. His dreamlike canvases populated with pubescent girls in provocative poses garnered him both praise and scorn from artists and critics alike. This volume, edited by renowned scholar Jean Clair, includes more than 400 color plates and includes essays by the premier experts on Balthus's work and life as well as recollections of the artist by his colleagues and friends."--Jacket

The great parade : portrait of the artist as clown by Jean Clair( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The circus is a dazzling world filled with acrobats and harlequins, tumblers and riders, monsters and celestial creatures. Now this engaging book sets that world in a new light, examining how painters, sculptors, and photographers from the eighteenth century to the present have used the circus as a springboard for their imaginative expression and have envisioned the clown as a metaphor for the modern artist. The book presents more than 175 works by such artists as Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rouault, Picasso, Chagall, and Leger. Some of these are masterful works shown for the first time rangiing from the 18-meter stage curtain Picasso designed in 1917 for Erik Satie's ballet Parade to more intimate works such as Nadar and Tournachon's photographs of Pierrot as played by celebrated mime Charles Debureau

The 1930s : the making of "the new man" by Jean Clair( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the heels of the Roaring Twenties, the 1930s, which spanned from the economic crisis of 1929 to the outbreak of the Second World War, was a dark decade. Beyond similiar governmental, mechanisms, these regimes shared an ideology: the will to create what they called the "New Man."" "This decade began with a more or less innocent dream of the theme of the original egg, germination, the harmonious growth of a fabric both biological and social, but ended with the nightmarish discovery of the corpses in the concentration camps by the armies of liberation in 1945"--Jacket
