Paul Delvaux (1897-1994)

Paul Delvaux (Antheit, Belgium, 1897 - Fumes, Belgium, 1994)

DelvauxA Belgian painter of international fame, Paul Delvaux is considered one of the great masters of Surrealism, alongside Dali and Magritte.

His style, almost academic, stands in contrast to his interest in mysterious and dream-like themes. His pieces often depict women in an unsettling atmosphere marked by a certain eroticism. At the age of twenty one, Delvaux entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, where he was later professor. He started his career almost exclusively painting landscapes and later practiced a kind of impressionist realism. In the 30s and 40s his work left behind the earlier Flemish influences as he began to participate in Surrealist exhibitions, greatly influenced by De Chirico and Rene Magritte.

Because of his declining eyesight, Paul Delvaux stopped painting in 1986, and celebrated his great retrospective exhibition in Paris in 1992.
