The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum presents an exhibition devoted to Belgian painter Paul Delvaux (1897-1994), an artist represented in both the Museum’s permanent collection (Woman in the Mirror, 1936) and the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection (The Viaduct, 1963). Conducted in conjunction with the Musée d’Ixelles, this exhibition brings together over fifty works by the painter, coming from public and private collections in Belgium, especially the Ghêne collection.

In this video, Laura Neve, curator of the Exhibition, explains the unmistakable dreamlike quality of Delvaux’s world and the display´s tour, five great themes of his iconography: Eros and Thanatos; the reclining Venus; the obsession with the Double; classical architecture and train stations; and finally, the Dance of Death.
