Balthus at the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome: Art or Teen Porn?

Balthus via Scuderie del Quirinale

There is a major monographic Balthasar Klossowski de Role (Balthus) exhibition at the Scuderie del Quirinale and Villa Medici in Rome. 

The Balthus (1908–2001) exhibition will run until January 31, 2016 and was curated by Cécile Debray who is the curator of the Musée National d'Art Moderne. 

The split exhibition contains almost two hundred photographs, drawings and paintings that were culled from European and American museums and private collections. 

We profiled Balthus in a previous post, and we discussed the art versus child pornography debate as it pertains to the artist.
