Paul Delvaux

1897 – 1994

Born in the family of a lawyer, the parents disapproved of his desire to be a painter and he therefore started to study architecture. In his spare time he painted mainly landcapes into which, towards the end of the 1920s, he  incorporated nudes, as a reflection of the influence of Flemish Expressionism and metaphysical painting of Giorgio de Chirico. Delvaux finally found the greatest liking for the beautiful world od dreams -  Surrealism to which he remained faithfull for his entire life. In the 1960s he was active as the director of the Academie Royale des Beaux- Arts in Brussels and in 1982 his museum was opened in the Belgian Saint Idesbald.
