Product Description

James Ensor (HC)

By Anna Swinbourne. Essays by Susan Canning, Michel Draguet, Robert Hoozee, Laurence Madeline, Jane Panetta, Anna Swinbourne, and Herwig Todts.

This remarkable book, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, is the most comprehensive volume on Ensor in English. Approximately ninety paintings, prints, and drawings are featured, creating a complete picture of the artist's daring, experimental oeuvre.

Ensor's modernity, his innovative and allegorical approach to light, his prominent use of satire, his deep interest in carnival and performance, and, finally, his own self-fashioning, masking, and role playing are examined in essays by Susan Canning, professor of art history, College of New Rochelle, New York; Michel Draguet, director, Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium; Robert Hoozee, director, Ghent Museum of Fine Arts; Anna Swinbourne, Assistant Curator in the Department of Painting and Scultpure at MoMA; and Herwig Todts, curator, Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp. Includes 165 color images.
