The Belgian painter James Ensor created numerous etchings and dry point works in addition to his paintings. He became known as the ‘painter of masks’ because fantastic visions of demons, skeletons and masks were always at the centre of his work. Ensor’s style can be classified as symbolism and is considered a precursor of expressionism. The paintings live from the contrast of cheerful colours and disturbing forms. Whether as a poster or gallery print: these pictures are real eye-catchers.
