« Paul Delvaux, a walk with Love and Death » at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid.
Whilst present amongst its permanent collections, Belgian painter Paul Delvaux is now brought to the forefront in partnership with the Ixelles Museum.
The exhibition is presented as a thematic survey, spotlighting over fifty works from both public and private collections. After his realist, fauvist and expressionist encounters, Pau Delvaux discovered the work of Magritte and de Chirico. Surrealism proved a revelation for the artist, who was fascinated by its poetry and its simultaneously mysterious and iconoclastic side. This is what encouraged him, in the 1930s, to form his own universe, oscillating between the classical and modern worlds, between dreams and reality. From 24th February to 7th June
