Balzan Report
4 July 2016
Yves Bonnefoy 1923 - 2016
The International Balzan Foundation mourns the death of  Yves Bonnefoy, 1995 Balzan Prizewinner for Art History and Art Criticism.

Bonnefoy was awarded the prize with this motivation:
His work as an art critic and historian, inseparable from an important body of poetic work, has contributed in a exceptional way to the understanding of the current situation of art. In his comparative studies on the function of poetry, his interpretations have profoundly renewed the reasons for which we feel attached to the great art works of the past.
