Product story

James Ensor was born in Ostend and barely left his home town during his lifetime; his family, however, ran a curio shop filled with an array of exotic objects including parrots, a monkey and masks from around the world, which perhaps in part influenced the imagery of his mature work. Marked by psychological complexity, contradictions and sheer eccentricity, Ensor’s works – featuring such bizarre subject-matter as dressed-up skeletons and macabre carnival masks – have continued to baffle and intrigue in equal measure and were a major influence on Expressionism and Surrealism.

176 pages, contains over 75 colour illustrations.
