1. Painter and his Model (1981). Balthus (Polish-French, Expressionism, 1908-2001). Tempera on canvas. Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris.

    Balthus supervised the restoration of the Villa Medici, rediscovering ancient frescoes, and replanted the gardens in their old splendour. His few paintings from this period and some from later years, as in the Painter and his Model, are set in and around the villa. They betray a final influence, that of Japanese art.
