Delvaux, Paul
(1897-1994)
   Paul Delvaux was born in Antheit, near Huy, on 23 September 1897. He studied at the Académie royale des Beaux-Arts from 1920 to 1924. A painter and printmaker, Del-vaux's early works (Seascapes [1923]), evince the strong influence of such Flemish expressionist painters as Constant Permeke. By the mid-1930s, he turned to surrealism, which subsequently defined his oeuvre. Much influenced by René Magritte and Giorgio De Chirico, he became a leading surrealist in Belgium. Paintings such as Pink Bows (1937) display somnolent figures and incorporate the play of light and shadow underlying timeless stillness that are characteristic features of his canvases. Delvaux died at Veurne on 20 July 1994.
