Atelier

Beautiful and tense on is big paws, a puma watches as one enters the room where Harumi draws: three windows on the forecourt of the Grand Chalet (spiky gate, thistle-like, garlanded with clematis), this was Balthus's library, all blond fire-wood, there's a vast fireplace, antique Swiss furniture, every art book and a whole shelf for Le Magasin Pittoresque (1830-1860). The puma (stuffed, yes, but it gave one pause), also an eagle with spread wings and ferocious beak, guard Harumi's chamber of wonders. On the right side, a long sideboard displays all sorts of specimens, a weird creature in an armor of brown scales (is it a pangolin?), rock crystals, drift-wood snakes or antlers, skeletons meticulous and mysterious, with handsome books illustrating the marvels of Nature; above it, an elegant junk-shop mirror flanked by boxes of butterflies and  scarabs.  On the  opposite  wall,  in  a

cabinet with lit recesses, gold is agleam: fish bracelets, tiger-head rings, snake necklaces, butterfly wings in delicate filigree… Under the three windows, a large table bears pots of pencils and paintbrushes, trays of gold paint, drawing paper, tracing paper, computer; left and right of the central window hang two cast-iron lion masks with curly neck (they were pockets of a billiard table, the mouth falls open to retrieve the ball) and drawings by Harumi in symmetrical frames. Harumi sits at this table, leaning over slightly, hair pulled to one side showing nape and lovely shoulder like in a Biedermeier painting. Now she faces one, full of childish mirth. “Now, she says, I make dragons out of drift-wood, curvy saplings, their roots like Chinese snouts with formidable eyebrows and whiskers. My dragons are fantastic, come and see!”
