  • About

    Matching diversity with originality, Baldessin executed dazzling works on paper, filled with a world of elusive symbols and motifs - pears, his so-called 'personages', windows and chairs - which became potent symbols across all media of his oeuvre. Quirky, absurdist and disquieting imagery characterises Baldessin's work, matched by his highly sophisticated skills as a printmaker.
