Item description for Paul Delvaux by Paul Delvaux...

This monograph investigates the work of the Belgian Surrealist painter Paul Delvaux, a colleague of Rene Magritte's whose best-known works feature odd groupings of female nudes who stare into space, transfixed, while making enigmatic gestures in Surreally mismatched settings--for example while walking down an empty street, reclining in a train station or gathering in a complex of classical buildings. Sometimes these haunting muses wander through space accompanied by a skeletons; other times, they sit silently in long and sombre Puritanical dresses, as if serving out a penance.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paul Delvaux?

It is Delvaux's absurdity and innocence of his art that gives his pictures undeniable charm  Aug 20, 2007
It is difficult for me to understand why Delvaux was considered so deeply shocking in his native Belgium. His nudes, after all, are never creatures of reality; they live in their strange dream world-remote, mysterious, and subtly threatening. Perhaps it is this menacing presence in his paintings that was considered to be so alarming by compatriots.
My favorite, "A Siren in Full Moonlight," is a magical work that seems to me to be completely without sexual provocation. It is not a woman as a "temptress," but a woman as alien. Delvaux depicts her enclosed in the secret world of her unknowable mysteries. This woman of fish is living on the land of man; she is distanced by Delvaux, seemingly with a mixture of fascination and fear.
