Glamour 1968 and The Painter known as Balthus

I've been looking at old Glamour magazines from '68/'69. The September '68 College issue (50cents!) features Serious Little Dresses photoed by Stupakoff.

The compositions reminded me of Balthus. I can't find the exact pics on-line, but I think the following from 1942 give a pretty good idea of why I was reminded of his paintings.

"The Patience"
I spent a long winter a dozen years ago copying his work. I destroyed the work in late spring.
