"Resonance(s)" april - june 2014 

Born in 1897 in Belgium and died in 1994.

Although never directly associated with the Surrealist movement, Paul Delvaux was influenced by some of its ideas and dreamlike atmosphere. Combining in his works both classical and modernist features, he also incorporated elements from his architecture studies and childhood memories. Delvaux has painted nocturnal landscapes and railway stations, but his work is marked by the presence of statuesque female figures – mostly nude and with melancholic gazes – evolving in mysterious settings, permeated by an underlying eroticism. “I have always had great joy in painting and I always lost myself in my works while creating them. Each subject is preceded by long, elaborate work before achieving the harmony and balance that I tried to put in it,” said the artist.
