Documents the first major survey of the disquieting drawings of French artist and writer Klossowski (b. 1905), whose explicit treatment of themes of androgyny and sexual fetishism indirectly reflect his involvement in philosophical and literary movements and his interest in de Sade, Nietzsche, Kafka and Wittgenstein. The scholarly catalogue includes five essays discussing Klossowski's singular aesthetic concerns and provocative subjects along with an anthology of his writings on art, and features a catalogue raisonne of more than 300 drawings produced by the artist from 1952 to 1990 -- chiefly pencil or colored-pencil works, including portraits of such associates as Gide, Breton, Barthes and Balthus (the artist's brother) as well as many drawings created as illustrations for Klossowski's own literary compositions.
