Weisenbergi tn 34 in Tallinn The works of the Belgian surrealist Paul Delvaux, with their dreamy atmosphere, which significantly impacted 20th-century art, combine the real and the illusory, and play with combinations and citations of deeply personal motifs in art history. The exhibition was organised in collaboration with the Musée d’Ixelles (Belgium) and, on Thursday, 24 November at 5 pm, Claire Leblanc, the curator of the exhibition and a conservator at the Musée d’Ixelles, will provide an introduction to the exhibition.paul-delvaux-2 The tour will be conducted in English.
Delvaux's paintings of the late 1920s and early 1930s, which feature nudes in landscapes, are strongly influenced by Flemish Expressionists. A change of style around 1933 reflects the influence of the metaphysical art of Giorgio de Chirico. The paintings Delvaux became famous for usually feature numbers of nude women who stare as if hypnotized, gesturing mysteriously, sometimes reclining incongruously in a train station or wandering through classical buildings.
You can visit the exhibition from 11:00 to 18:00.  The Museum is closed on Monday and Tuesday. The tickets are available ath the ticket office at 6€ (adults), 4€ (concessions) et 12€ (family ticket)
