JAMES ENSOR: THROUGH THE EYES OF LUC TUYMANS. Luc Tuymans. Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Abrams, New York. 176 pp. with 130 col. ills. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781910350454 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: James Ensor (1860-1949) produced some of the most unusual paintings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Marked by psychological complexity, contradictions, and sheer eccentricity, his works -- featuring such bizarre subject matter as dressed-up skeletons and macabre carnival masks -- have continued to baffle and intrigue in equal measure. Ensor was born in Ostend, Belgium, and despite his success barely left his home town during his lifetime; his family's curio shop, which was filled with exotic objects including parrots, a monkey, and masks from around the world, surely influenced the imagery of his mature work. In this volume, published to accompany a major exhibition, essays explore Ensor's life and legacy, while leading contemporary artist Luc Tuymans comments on his selection of Ensor's works, offering a distinctive view of Ensor, one only another artist can provide.
