Ensor revealed

@ ING Cultural Centre

James Ensor, "Prince of Painters", precursor of surrealism but even more akin to Bruegel and Goya, was born 150 years ago, in 1860. To mark the occasion, ING, in a co-production with the KMSKA and the Centre for Fine Arts, sets out to penetrate the mental world of this brilliant, prolific artist and complex human being, equally fascinated by light and by death. For this exceptional project, almost the entire contents of the world's largest collection of Ensor's paintings and drawings are coming to the ING Cultural Centre in Brussels: the priceless collection conserved by the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp (KMSKA), which will be closing its doors for extensive renovations in 2011. More than 30 paintings and 150 drawings, as well as dozens of photographs and various private documents never previously exhibited, will reveal the startling secrets of a dreamy child who became a major artist. At last: Ensor revealed!
