Balthus' style is primarily classical. His work shows numerous influences, and although his technique and compositions were inspired by pre-Renaissance painters, there are also influences by contemporary surrealists like de Chirico. Balthus was one of the few living artists to be represented in the Louvre, when his painting The Children (1937) was acquired from the private collection of Pablo Picasso.
Balthus was born in Paris. At the age of 13, he published his first illustrated book, which included a preface by Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke. In 1933, he moved into his first Paris studio at the Rue de Furstenberg. As his international fame grew with exhibitions in the gallery of Pierre Matisse in 1938 and the Museum of Modern Art in 1956, he cultivated the image of himself as an enigma. In 1964, Balthus moved to Rome where he became the director of the French Academy and a friend of the filmmaker Federico Fellini.
