Published in 1847, Wuthering Heights was the only novel written by Emily Bronte, who lived from 1818 to 1848. The adjective wuthering, in Yorkshire dialect, refers to the turbulent weather, and of course to the turbulent atmosphere that permeates the book." (N.B., from Newsletter.) The drawings, whose incisive linear quality has been described by Jean Leymarie, Balthus' biographer and critic, as 'lit up with something of the book's flame and storm-flashes, have a place apart in his work and have provided the inspiration for several of his paintings' Folio.
