Ensor and Ostend

Where:
The James Ensor House
When:
14/07/20 to 27/09/20

The opening exhibition of The James Ensor House and Xavier Tricot shines a spotlight on the unique relationship between James Ensor (1860-1949) and the City of Ostend. The exhibition was made possible thanks to the loan of several oil paintings, etchings and drawings from public and private collections. This pioneer of modern art felt the connection with the city of his birth more deeply than perhaps any other painter. He painted and sang her praises throughout his life. Ensor considered Ostend the most blessed, if not mythical place, on Earth. The purpose of the exhibition is to emphasize this important facet of Ensor’s oeuvre and is, first and foremost, a tribute by the City of Ostend to one of its most celebrated sons.
