PAUL DELVAUX. AN INTROSPECTIVE LOOK WITH THE CRAYON
An introspective look with the crayon way is the final part of the cycle of three exhibitions that the Museum dedicated to the printmaking of Paul Delvaux. This part is an ode to the vitality of the artist, who at the end of his life dedicated himself to a new technique for him. Encouraged by his nephew Charles Van Deun, Delvaux recovered the same pleasure in the so-called 'crayon way' that he had always experienced.
These prints in varnish give us an insight into the way Delvaux then looked back on his work from the past. The exhibition shows striking relationships with earlier works and emphasizes the importance of ancient sources as a creative fish pond. These intimate prints, which announce the last works - the designs of the Mémoires (Drawings from memory) - offer the visitor especially the opportunity to delve into the special world of Delvaux.
