Pierre Klossowski; artist, writer with erotic leaning was Balthus' brother

Monday, August 13, 2001

The Associated Press

PARIS -- French artist and writer Pierre Klossowski, the older brother of the painter Balthus, has died, France's culture minister said Sunday. He was 96.

Mr. Klossowski, often associated with the surrealists, was best known for writing and drawings that mixed eroticism with musings on the metaphysical and religious.

The artist died Sunday at his home in Paris, France Info radio reported. His death came six months after that of his younger brother, Balthus, who also was known for erotic works.

"A man of immense culture has left us," Culture Minister Catherine Tasca told France Info. "I'm sure that Klossowski's writing, and his painting, too, will remain an inspiration in the years and decades that come."

Mr. Klossowski was born into a family of artists in August 1905. His brother went on to become one of the 20th century's greatest realist painters. Balthus died in February at age 93.

Mr. Klossowski's written works include "Sade My Neighbor," about the ravenous marquis, and a collection of novels, "The Laws of Hospitality," which explore sexuality and the connections between mind and body.

Some of his best-known suggestive drawings were published in his novel "Roberte, Tonight," which focused on a character modeled after his wife, Denise.

Mr. Klossowski was close to the French writers Andre Gide and Andre Breton.

He appeared in the 1966 film "Au Hasard Balthazar," by French director Robert Bresson, who used untrained actors.

No details on funeral arrangements were immediately available.
