The Balcony, 2006

Author: Francis Ruyter

Acrylic on canvas.

270 x 390 cm.

In this case, the title comes from another film from 1963, directed by Joseph Strick, based on a theatre piece by Jean Genet and starring Shelley Winters and Peter Falk.

These two pieces are excellent examples of Ruyter's continued interest in reproducing social scenes and events, such as a press conference in Room for One More or a concert in The Balcony.
