(1897 - ?)
Delvaux studied architecture at the Brussels Academie des Beaux-Arts, and starting in 1924, painted landscapes and portraits under the influence of Permeke. His name became known after a major exhibition of his art in 1928. He joined the surrealist movement in 1936, inspired by Chirico and Magritte. His paintings appeared to explore the same sensuous world, from Pink Knots (1937) to Girls at the Water’s Edge (1966). A film was made, by Henri Storck, about Delvaux, entitled Le Monde de Paul Delvaux (1947). Delvaux’s furhter works included murals at the Ostend Kursaal (1952) and the Liege Institute of Zoology (1960).
