surrealism ! what is surrealism ?
in my opinion , it is above all a reawakening of the poetic idea in art , the reintroduction of the subject but in a very particular sense , that of the strange and illogical

Paul Delvaux’s career developed in the shadow of Nazi Germany. It should not come as a surprise then, that his work is known for a distinct sense of anxiety and unease. Surprisingly, that anxiety is not expressed in overtly political subjects. Delvaux was instead interested in exploring humanity and the hidden recesses of the subconscious.
