Informationen zur Ausstellung:
From 1 November, on the occasion of its 25th anniversary, the Kunsthal Rotterdam will present a large retrospective exhibition of Paul Delvaux (1897-1994), one of the leading painters in Belgian art history. With ninety works, including paintings, drawings and water colours, the Kunsthal will pay tribute to this artist. Delvaux is known for his characteristic and mysterious visual language in which elements from a variety of art movements, such as expressionism, symbolism and surrealism, are effortlessly combined. The exhibition highlights the opulence of his oeuvre, influenced by the expressionism of James Ensor, Gustave de Smet and Constant Permeke. Encounters with contemporaries Giorgio De Chirico and René Magritte resulted in unusual and surrealistic influences in his work. Delvaux developed a unique visual language of his own and left behind an intensely poetic body of work. The exhibition will be accompanied by a Dutch-language catalogue. The exhibition ‘Paul Delvaux. Master of the dream’ will be accompanied by an extensive education programme for primary and secondary education focused on ‘learning how to look at art more intently’. Many of the works are part of the private collection of Pierre and Nicole Ghêne-Rahm, housed at the Museum of Elsene in Brussels. The selection of artworks from this collection will be accompanied by paintings from other museums and private collections. This exhibition was organized in collaboration with Museum van Elsene, Brussels.
Di–Sa 10–17, So 11–17
