Synopsis: Phantoms, skulls, skeletons and other macabre figures populate the paintings, drawings and prints of James Ensor. His works are bizarre, ironic, occasionally belligerent and provocative, but always buoyed by a keen sense of humor, and his nightmarish motifs reveal the absurd and grotesque about everyday life. Ensor’s interests were wide-ranging; he was as enthusiastic about Rembrandt’s prints as he was about the Belgian Carnival festival and Japanese masks. In turn, early twentieth-century artists such as Alfred Kubin, Paul Klee and the German Expressionists Emil Nolde and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner were inspired by his creative power and radical rejection of traditional European ideals of beauty. This volume presents nearly 60 paintings and an equal number of drawings, which are published here for the first time.
James Ensor (1860–1949) was born in Brussels where he studied at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts. He first exhibited his work in 1881, and received his first solo exhibition four years later. Despite initial attacks in the press, Ensor quickly found favor in his native Belgium. By 1920 he was the subject of major exhibitions; in 1929 he was named a baron by King Albert; and in 1933 he was awarded the Légion d’honneur. Ensor rarely left Belgium, and endeared himself to the people of Ostend, where he spent most of his life, as a familiar figure about town.

Book Description: This engaging volume describes the creation and restoration of James Ensor’s extraordinary large-scale drawing The Temptation of Saint Anthony, a work composed of fifty-one sheets collaged into a hallucinatory manifesto.

Book Description Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2013. Gebundene Ausgabe. Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Gut Unbenutzt, aber geringe Lagerspuren - Das uvre des belgischen Künstlers James Ensor (1860-1949) ist von Gegensätzen geprägt. War er doch einerseits ein aufmerksamer Beobachter der Natur, beeindruckt vom Realismus und Naturalismus des 19. Jahrhunderts, und andererseits ein Meister des Fantastischen. Seine Arbeiten sind skurril, ironisch, mitunter angriffslustig und provokant, dabei von Humor getragen. Die ungewöhnlichen Motive offenbaren das Absurde und Groteske des menschlichen Alltags. Ensors Interessen waren vielfältig, er begeisterte sich für das druckgrafische Werk Rembrandts ebenso wie für den belgischen Karneval und japanische Masken. Künstler wie Alfred Kubin, Paul Klee und die deutschen Expressionisten zeigten sich zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts wiederum von seiner Schaffenskraft und radikalen Absage an das Schönheitsideal der europäischen Kunstgeschichte inspiriert. Der Band stellt nahezu 60 Gemälde und ebenso viele teils erstmalig veröffentlichte Zeichnungen vor. Ausstellungen: Ordrupgaard, Charlottenlund 6.9.2013-19.1.2014 Kunstmuseum Basel 16.2.-25.5.2014 Phantoms, skulls, skeletons, and other macabre figures characterize the oeuvre of James Ensor (1860 1949). His works are bizarre, ironic, occasionally belligerent and provocative, and always buoyed by a profound sense of humor. The unusual motifs reveal what is absurd and grotesque about everyday life.
