James Ensor

2024 marks the 75th anniversary of James Ensor's death. The Ensor Year pays tribute to the Belgian great master - innovator, game-changer, inspiration and complex personality. No other artist had such a pivotal role in the development of modernism. He liberated painting from romantic heroism and appearances. With him, the visual arts evolved into a liberal dream world that extended so much further than his iconic masks. Throughout the year, there are various activities and exhibitions in Ostend (where Ensor was born and raised) and Antwerp (home to the largest Ensor collection at KMSKA). In this lecture, Barry Heinrichs will tell you everything you need to know about James Ensor's work in preparation for a possible visit to one of the exhibitions.
